Lawan meets PDP govs, senators over Senate presidency


The Senate Majority Leader and All Progressives Congress candidate for the Senate presidency in the 9th National Assembly, Ahmed Lawan, has reached out to some Peoples Democratic Party governors to brighten his chances of winning the number three position.

This is contrary to the ruling party’s earlier position that it would not need the PDP for its candidate to emerge winner in the race.
Lawan’s adoption by the ruling party’s National Working Committee has divided the party, with Senators Ali Ndume (Borno) and Danjuma Goje (Gombe) insisting on contesting the post despite the APC’s position.

The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, had shortly after the NWC’s adoption of Lawan, said the ruling party did not need the PDP lawmakers’ votes to clinch leadership seats in the National Assembly.

He cautioned against any power sharing deal with the opposition party.

The APC said all committees in the Senate would be chaired by the APC senators.
But Lawan met with three PDP governors during the week to seek their support.
