Ali Ndume, a former Senate Leader and senator from Borno South Senatorial District, has revealed why he is running for Senate President.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Borno South Senator spoke out against Senate President zoning, emphasizing that the fairness of the zoning arrangements will influence the success of his bid.
He criticized the APC’s choice to insist on zoning arrangements for posts in the National Assembly although such arrangements were ignored during the presidential primary election.
According to Ndume: “Subject to the position of the party (APC), and the fairness of such arrangements, I intend to throw my hat in the race for Senate Presidency because of my experience.
“The APC leadership did not take any position during the presidential primary election. Aspirants from all geopolitical zones participated in the exercise.
“Senators should be allowed to choose a competent person among them that has adequate legislative and managerial experiences to lead the Senate.”
