All Progressives Congress (APC) youths in Yobe have called on the newly elected Senators to support the candidature of Senator Ahmed Lawan, currently the majority leader who is gunning for the position of Senate President at the 9th National Assembly.
APC youth leader in Damaturu local government, Yusuf Goni (Kaka), made
this known to Blueprint in a chat on Friday.
Goni said Lawan was the right candidate with vast experience as a legislature.
“All the other candidates are APC members and have right to contest,
but Senator Ahmed Lawan is the most appropriate person for that
position, having served the National Assembly for 20 years and had been
loyal to the party in all circumstances.
“We want a senate president that will allow the passage of bill on
time for President Muhammadu Buhari to bring developmental projects to
Nigerians, not like the 8th assembly that brought a lot of set backs,”
Senator Ahmed Lawan who is Senator representing Yobe North had served
as Member House of Representative for three consecutive terms and two
terms as Senator of the Federal Republic.
