minna—Serving and elected Senators in Niger under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, weekend endorsed Senator Ahmed Lawan for the ninth senate president seat.
The endorsement was contained in a statement issued in Minna and signed by three senators, Mohammed Sani Musa – Niger East, Sabi Abdullahi – Niger North and Senator-elect, Muhammad Bima-Enagi – Niger-south in Minna.
According to them, Lawan has an impeccable character and undeniable wealth of experience as a lawmaker to drive the aspirations and vision of the 9th Senate towards achieving its mandate.
“There is no doubt that Lawan has also demonstrated stability, reliability and fidelity towards ensuring sound and people-oriented legislation at the Senate as he demonstrated in the build-up to the 2019 general elections where despite the pressure from the opposition, remained resolute and committed towards promoting the good course of the Senate as the apex law-making organ in the country.
“Sen. Lawan is one Nigerian who has remained detribalised, bi-partisan and accommodating to varying views as long as they are positive to the wellbeing of Nigerians.
“He has demonstrated this in his support for legislations sponsored by lawmakers who might not have been in the same political parties with him at the floor of the senate.’’
“Sen. Lawan will promote homogeneity of purpose at the 9th denate and foster unity amongst distinguished senators as well as other arms of government.’’
