Nigerian Governors Battle Incumbent Senators Over 2015 Polls by masterdre: 2:21pm On Aug 13, 2013
A battle of political supremacy rages between the two prominent sons of the Eastern Senatorial District of Niger State. Babangida Aliyu, the state governor, who will complete his constitutionally approved second-term in office, and Dahiru Kuta, the senator representing the district in the Senate, are battling each other over who would occupy the seat in the upper legislative chamber from May 2015.

Although Mr. Aliyu, who is Chairman of the Northern State Governors Forum, NSGF, has not publicly proclaimed his desire to occupy the seat, it is believed he will spend his immediate political future in the upper house. Mr. Aliyu’s intention to contest the senatorial election is allegedly because his presidential ambition is clashing with that of President Goodluck Jonathan, who is also yet to formally announce his plan to re-contest.
