”Ensure fairness at all times. Leadership at home, community or national level is a heavy responsibility. And it must be discharged with fairness, firmness and justice,’’ he added.

According to statement, Buhasri further urged the state lawmakers to be selfless, visionary and committed to meeting the needs of the electorate, while minding their constitutional responsibilities.

The Speaker, in his remarks, thanked president Buhari for providing leadership at the national level, and setting a standard on integrity and forthrightness for others to emulate.

He therefore, assured the President that the Katsina House of Assembly would continue to support his policies, and ensure a trickling down in the state to favour their various constituencies.
