Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu described the Presidential Assent as a "major development in the efforts by the present administration to restore peace and normalcy in the North East and making the harrowing experience of the people as a result of the insurgency a thing of the past".

"I applaud President Buhari for signing the North East Development Commission Bill into law. Now, that the NEDC Act has the full force and effect of the law, it is my hope that we can collectively work towards the rehabilitation, reconstruction and rebuilding of the North East.
