President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Thursday reiterated the resolve of the Eighth Senate to continue to protect and defend the nation’s fledgling democracy.

A statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu in Abuja on Thursday, notes that Saraki said this during his meeting with chairmen and leaders of 45 registered political parties who had paid him what they called “solidarity visit.”

At the meeting which was broadcast live on Facebook, Saraki told the party leaders, led by the National Chairman of the Democratic United Party, Perry Okpara, that as direct representatives of the people, lawmakers will continue to play their role to ensure that the rule of law is followed and that human rights are respected in the country.

Okpara had earlier told Saraki that the visit was to show their solidarity with the leadership of the National Assembly for standing up in defence of democracy in the face of the recent siege to the complex by operatives of the Department of State Services.

Saraki said: “I thank you for taking out time to be with us here today. Thank you for the solidarity message and we truly appreciate it as it encourages us to further do what we are doing to defend democracy in our great country.
