Senate presidency: Tinubu meets over 40 Senators-elect, makes strong appeal


Ahead of the inauguration of the 10th Senate on Tuesday next week, President Bola Tinubu has appealed to the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senators-elect to abide by the zoning arrangements as announced by the party’s National Working Committee NWC.

Recall that the APC had last month zoned the position of the President of the Senate in the 10th Assembly to the South-South with Senator Godswill Akpabio as the preferred candidate and Senator Jubrin Barau from North West, as preferred candidate for deputy Senate President.

According to a former Presidential Aspirant, Adamu Garba, Tinubu made the appeal while addressing over 40 APC Senators-elect led by Senator Akpabio at the Aso Rock Villa Wednesday night.

According to a tweet on his verified handle, Tinubu asked the Senators-elect to toe the lines of the party’s zoning arrangement in electing their Presiding Officers, stressing that, “this is the right thing to do in support of the Renewed Hope agenda” of his administration.
