The leaders of the All Progressives Congress APC are lobbying PDP Senators to support Sen. Ahmed Lawan for Senate President of the 9th Senate. This decision is against earlier position taken by APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole when he declared that the broom party doesn’t need the support of PDP to run government. After sensing that PDP may thwart their plan to install Sen. Lawan for the 3rd position in the land, they now have a rethink. But I think it is late already as PDP may not support their Candidate.
Meanwhile, Sen. Danjuma Goje of Gombe State, a two term governor on the platform of PDP and Sen. Ali Ndume, a former Senate Leader are still on the race against their party decision.
From all indication, PDP Senators will rather support Danjuma Goje or sponsor their own Candidate instead to support Ahmed Lawan or Ali Ndume. That is politics for you as no single political party is independent of itself without the support of others especially when you don’t have the majority you needed to take certain decisions.
The uncomplimentary and unwarranted statement by Adams Oshiomhole that they don’t need PDP support to constitute the leadership of the 9th Senate will spell doom for APC as their house is already in disarray.
Meanwhile, APC leaders insist that those who are challenging the party decision must quit the party within two months before the composition of the National Assembly.
