PDP Senators-elect Meet Over Leadership Tussle by Islie: 8:20am On Mar 21, 2019
Senators-elect of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) met in Abuja last night over the leadership tussle for the coming 9th Assembly, Daily Trust has learnt.

Sources told Daily Trust that the meeting was part of their plans on how they would confront the leadership contest in the Senate.

It was gathered that the PDP senators-elect want to negotiate and see the right person to back among the APC senators, with the hope that a repeat of the 2015 scenario where one of their own, Ike Ekweremadu emerged Deputy Senate President despite APC’s majority status, would happen.

Our correspondent gathered that the PDP senators-elect may support one of the three APC senators seeking for the Senate president’s office from the North East, namely Ahmad Lawan, Ali Ndume and Danjuma Goje.

A source familiar with the scheming going on said, “They (PDP senators-elect) may be more comfortable with Goje because he’s close to Saraki and he was one of them.”

The PDP has about 43 senators-elect for the 9th Assembly against the APC’s 65.

Everything they do is for their personal gain.
Instead of them to start rolling out legislative program that will affect their constituents positively, they are busy scheming for who will benefit them.

I think PDP is more cohesive and focus than APC as a party especially in the area of politicking in the National Assembly

APC has finally humbled you. abi it's the loss of GEJ in 2015 that made you stop writing your political opinion anymore. I so much enjoy most of your political write ups. still waiting for you to write your view about the just concluded election. how market?

We may likely see another PDP deputy Senate President. Or, whoever becomes the Senate President becomes loyal to Saraki and PDP. PDP plays this game well than APC.

if they can get just 10 APC Senators, they can hijacked and get the PDP Senate President and upturned everything. they should go for closed ballot.
