The SGF, Mustapha, in his opening remarks at the inauguration, said the committee will bring better synergy between the executive and legislature, so the Buhari administration can deliver on its promises to the people.

In a briefing after the inauguration, Senate President Lawan said both the Executive and Legislature will no longer tolerate appointees of the President who bring disrepute to the administration by abusing the legislature.

He assured that the synergy between the newly inaugurated consultative committee will ensure both arms of government speak with one voice.

However, he promised that the expected synergy will not erode the function of checks and balances, a principle the legislature is committed to.
