Buhari said this when he received speakers of the state assembly at the Presidential villa in Abuja on Thursday.

The presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina in a statement quotes the President as saying that Nigerians must adhere to the constitution, or change to reflect dynamics and realities of the country.

Buhari said the constitution has constrained the automomy of the state legislature.

The President urged his guests to always consider the interest of the people in negotiations and deliberations.

The 8th National Assembly sometimes kept the budget for seven months. And I had to call the Senate President and the Speaker then. I told them by delaying passage of the budget you are not hurting Buhari, but the people.

“We have in the last four years dedicated significant resources to key social services sectors especially in health, education as well as our massive social investment programs. We have also started restoring our infrastructure to levels that this country expects.

“I also want to assure you that we remain committed to ensuring that equity and fairness prevail in governance. I will ensure that we consult your conference to further enhance the positive impact of our interventions across the country.”
