Senate Presidency: Fight In APC Camp As Senator Goje Get Endorsed

It is no longer a news that the APC leadership as well as President Muhammadu Buhari have endorsed Ahmad Lawan from Yobe state for the senate president job.
This has, however, not stopped other lawmakers from indicating their interest, as North-East Youths Development Association endorsed Danjume Goje, senator representing Gombe central, as the next senate president.
Their action is against the position the APC leadership.

They besieged the national assembly on Thursday and asked the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to not only zone the position to the north-east but to back Senator Goje for the job.

The group carried various placards with inscriptions calling on lawmakers as well to support Goje, a former governor of Gombe, who they said would “make the legislature viable” in Nigeria.

Bello Ambo, chairman of the association, said Goje is “qualified” to take over from Bukola Saraki.
“His wealth of experience and managerial prowess gannered right from his days as federal minister and of late the Governor of Gombe state... Being a third-term ranking senator he has the ability and capacity to lead the 9th Senate effectively.

“Considering his wealth of experience as a proven administrator and also the chairman of the Senate committee on appropriation he is conversant with rigours of the Senate.

The APC is expected to produce the next senate president as they have 25 seats more than the PDP.
