Ndume Rejects Oshiomhole’s Endorsement of Lawan As Next Senate PresidentFeatured, Latest News, News Tuesday, March 26th, 2019
A former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, has described has rejected the endorsement of Senator Ahmad Lawan as the APC candidate for the position of Senate President of the 9th National Assembly.
Addressing Journalists in Abuja, Ndume said that the choice of Lawan was unilaterally taken by the APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
“It was Adams Oshiomhole that said that Ahmad Lawan should be our next Senate President. I don’t believe that is the truly the position of Mr President.
“Before I went into this contest, I consulted with Mr President and he gave me the go-ahead. I consulted with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and he also gave me the go-ahead immediately after the primaries.
“Even the chosen candidate was not given the chance to thank us or to say something about it. Those of us that are interested in contesting the position were not even consulted. I left the venue in shock.
“If this is God’s decision, it will last, if it is not, God will take His own decision. I have a vision for the Senate because the Senate has drifted and is drifting to a position where it will not be able to serve its purpose” Ndume stated
