Binta Masi Garba Aims To Be First Female Senate President by Nobody: 5:30pm On May 01, 2015
Senator-elect representing Adamawa North Senatorial District on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Binta Masi Garba, said on Wednesday that she wants to make history as the first female Senate President in the country.
According to her, as the only female Senator from the North, her interest to contest for the office of the President of the Senate was to bring transparency and openness in the leadership of the red chamber.

Although the leadership of APC is yet to decide which geo-political zone in the North to zone the senate presidency slot to, the north east and north central are in pole position to clinch the number 3 position in the country.

Senators Bukola Saraki (Kwara) George Akume (Benue) and Ahmad Lawan (Yobe) are seen as leading contenders for the position.

Throwing her hat into the ring, the three term member of the House of Representatives from both Kaduna South and Michika/Madagali Federal Constituencies, told journalists in Abuja that she has written to all her colleagues and other Nigerians on the need to support her candidacy to emerge as the first female Senate President in Nigeria.

“Apart from the fact that I’ve leld several positions as a lawmaker in the House of Representatives, I am the first female Chairperson of any public party in Nigeria haven been elected as the Adamawa State Chapter Chairperson of the APC in April last year. I am still holding that position till today and the unity I brought to the party brought about the successes we recorded in the recent general elections.

“As a delegate member from Adamawa State at the National Conference, I served on the committee on Political Restructuring and Forms of Government. I know what Nigerians need when it comes to lawmaking and leadership. It’s time for all to support the female folks to be at the fore front of decision making in Nigeria”, she said.

If Patricia Etteh could be elected as Speaker of the House of Reps, then Senator-elect Binta should have a chance. However, if both Saraki and Akume are still in the race I don't she stands a realistic chance of becoming the Senate president.

Binta Masi Garba started her political career in the year 1998 in Kaduna, Nigeria. Before her political adventure, she worked with the New Nigeria Newspapers as an advert officer. It happens that, the year she was expecting a promotion in the office, her male colleague got a double promotion and she was left out even though she has same business schedules like him. Binta Masi Garba always advocated for women rights and has been a voice for millions of voiceless Nigerian women and the oppressed; thus prompting her to take up the mandate to represent them in the Federal House of representative Kaduna South Federal Constituency.

Not long from that gender inequality experience she decide to venture into politics in 1998 in Kaduna South Federal Constituency, a place where the prevailing culture forbid women to be in public domain. Her first bid in 1998 was not successful. Her desire for service made her to contest again in 1999 for the office of Federal House of Representatives. As a Christian, she won against her male opponent with a margin of not less than 5,000 in a Muslim dominated community, that shows her popularity and acceptability in Muslim dominated community. She was the youngest Federal legislator in Nigeria in 1999. After her first successful tenure, she contested again in 2003 and won against her opponent with a margin of not less than 50,000. Her opponent was a Muslim Mallam that was teaching in one of the Islamic Secondary School. The people consider her worthy of such office and never discriminate against her based on religious ground.

In 2006, close to the end of her second term in the Federal House of Representatives, the then Governor of Adamawa State, Boni Haruna, having heard of her excellent performance as a legislator representing Kaduna South, entreated her to come back to her State of origin, Adamawa State, and contest. After making consultations, she consented and came down to contest for House of Representatives in Madagali/Michika Federal Constituency under PDP. She eventually won the seat and represented the constituency from 2007 to 2011. After her third consecutive tenure in the Federal House of Assembly, she re-contested and lost against Titsi Ganama.
