APC Leader Demands Senate Presidency Or Speaker Position Back To Northern Nigeria



by Musa Abdullahi

The North-East chapter of the All Progressives Congress has demanded from the leadership of the party, the Senate Presidency or Speaker of the House of Representatives in recognition of their contribution to the party’s victory at the just concluded presidential election.

The people said they had abundant talents and qualified candidates for the positions if given the opportunity to produce either of the two major political positions.

The APC National Vice Chairman, North-East, Mr. Babachir Lawal, who made the demand in a statement in Abuja on Sunday, also urged the voters in the region to massively vote for the APC at the governorship and state House of Assembly election scheduled for Saturday.

He said, “In recognition of this immense contribution to the party’s victory, I want to seize this opportunity to call on the APC National Leadership to cede either the Senate Presidency or Speaker of the House of Representatives to the region.

“We have an abundance of talents and eminently qualified candidates for these positions and this will set the region on a course of accelerated development that it so desperately needs.”

Lawal however asked his people to vote for the APC on Saturday because “for us to reap the full benefits of an APC government at the centre, we must also have APC in government in the six states in our zone.”
