APC, PDP Endorse Sen. Lawan For Senate President

The two major political parties in the country, Congress and the , have unanimously endorsed Senator Ahmed Lawan to become the of the senate in the .

The endorsed Lawan for the number three position in the country following the decision of the party leaders to zone the to the North-East.

The North-East geo-political zone contributed immensely towards the success of President-elect Muhammadu at the polls with more than 2.5 million votes.

Lawan, who will be returning to the senate for his third term in office having being in the house since 2007, will represent Yobe-North senatorial district in the 8th Senate.

Lawan has also been accepted by those close to President-elect Muhammadu Buhari, because he was recognized among those who led Buhari’s presidential campaign in the then All Peoples Party in 2007 in Yobe .

The move by the APC to Lawan for the senate presidency was in actual fact orchestrated by the of the 7th Assembly, Senator David Mark.

Sen. Mark and his cohorts, as reported on newsbeatportal, are backing Lawan for the top seat in the senate.

In order for the senate president not to work against APC in the 8th Assembly, a reliable source from the APC confided in The PUNCH: “the catch there is that if the APC members in the Senate do not support Lawan and he wins the Senate presidency with bloc votes from the PDP and his friends in the North-East, he will be loyal to the PDP.”

“He may sideline us just as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu , attributed his victory to the APC back in 2011 even though he was a member of the PDP.”

With both political parties endorsing Lawan ahead of time, the June 2015 8th Assembly inauguration, and subsequent election of who occupies the number three position in the country may just be mere formalities.
