He said issues between arms of government in a democratic certain were good because they were for the purpose of good governance and the people they served.

“They are all strong institutions individually and no one can consume the other but for the purpose of good governance, peace and harmony of the country they should work together.  I’m sure that the twist and turns will work better for Nigeria by the end of the day, “ he said.

On the health of President Muhammadu Buhari, he urged Nigerians to keep on praying for him to recover and come back soon to continue the governance of the country.
