A onetime presidential aspirant under the defunct Social Democratic Party, SDP, Alhaji Umaru Muhammadu Maizabura has called on the incoming All Progressives Congress, APC, government and members of the National Assembly to concede the position of Senate president to the people of the North-East and Borno State in particular.
Maizabura, who made the call in an interview with newsmen in Maiduguri, said for equity, fairness and justice, the position of Senate president should be zoned to the North-East.
He said “for equity, fairness and justice the position of the Senate president should be zone to North-east, as since the inception of the democracy 16 years ago the region has not produce a principal officer of the National Assembly such as Speaker and Senate president, hence the need for the incoming 8th senate to concede the position for us.”
“We have credible and qualified candidates such as Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume who will competently head the Senate and the position will also help the region in the post insurgency reconstruction and rehabilitation,” he stated.
According to him, Senator Ndume is the best man for the job, as he has a proven integrity like the president elect, General Muhammadu Buhari.
He also called on Nigerians to assist in rebuilding the communities destroyed by the Boko Haram insurgency, more especially now that the military are clamping down on the insurgents.
