Senators flying the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) flag in the National Assembly have rescinded on their plans to support a friendly senator from the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the next Senate President.
According to PUNCH, PDP members are determined to have one of theirs as the Senate leader despite APC having the majority in the red chamber.
A South-East senator hinted;
“It is glaring that Senator Ali Ndume will contest the Senate president seat on the day of inauguration because he is obviously dissatisfied with the position of the party.
Rather than pacify him, the APC leadership seems not to care about the trauma and emotional pains they have subjected Ndume to by saying that the decision to pick Ahmad Lawan was final.”
