APC stakeholders endorse S-South & N-West ticket for Senate

Concerned members of the All Progressives Congress have reportedly approved the zoning of the Senate’s presidency to the South South and the selection of Senator Godswill Akpabio as president.

They argued that, regardless of how long their terms were, almost all of the states in the South East had produced Senate Presidents at some point.

A portion of the APC National Working Committee, NWC, decided to zone the position of Deputy Senate President to the Northwest, especially to Kano senator Jibrin Barau. The stakeholders agreed with this decision.

The stakeholders said that a combination of Akpabio and Barau in the Senate Presidency would engineer a successful Bola Tinubu administration, despite several governors in Barau’s zone opposing his adoption and already projecting one of the federal lawmakers for the House speakership.

Okpokwu Ogenyi, the stakeholders’ convener, stated during a briefing over the weekend in Abuja that the delivery of votes in the most recent presidential election was a consideration that needed to be taken into account when choosing the National Assembly’s presiding officers.

Because zoning is not done in a vacuum, he added, “We highly recommend Senator Godswill Akpabio for Senate President and Senator Barau Jibrin for Deputy Senate President.

We sincerely beseech Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of our great party, and the members of his National Working Committee, NWC, to zone the Senate Presidency seat to the South-South and the Deputy Senate President to the North West, preferably micro-zoning the Deputy Senate President to Akwa Ibom State and the Deputy Senate President to Kano State in order to make way for the highest ranking senators, Godswill Akpabio and Barau I.
