9th Senate: Why We Picked Lawan For Senate Presidency – APC by Calculating: 8:28am On Apr 15
The All Progressive Congress (APC) has explained why it picked Ahmed Lawan, the current leader of the 8th Senate, as its candidate for Senate Presidency in the 9th Senate.

Mr Lawan was the preferred candidate of the ruling party when the formation of the 8th Senate was due in 2015. But the dream did not come true because another lawmaker, Bukola Saraki, who belonged to the party at the time emerged winner.

The emergence of Mr Saraki was against the wish of the APC with several attempts to oust the top lawmaker thwarted. He was elected Senate President due to an alliance he formed with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to carry them along.

The spokesperson of the ruling party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the APC settled for Lawan because just like Saraki, the lawmaker is able to carry his colleagues along.

“It is important to note that one of the key considerations for adopting him as the party’s candidate for the Senate Presidency is his ability to carry everyone along,” Mr Issa-Onilu said.

“On top of that, the party has confidence in him not to compromise the progressive ideology of APC. So clearly, Senator Ahmed Lawan is capable of conducting his negotiations within the prism of APC’s objectives,” he added.

Simple Calculation!
The mistake that brought in Goodluck Jonathan must not be made again. Number 3 man must be a core Muslim northerner:
Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan a Muslim from Yobe State fulfills this.

In case anything happens to PNB, PYO must be forced to resign and finally power still resides in the north.

He deserves it. He has remained loyal to the executive unlike Ndume who supported Saraki but switched allegiance when he wasn't treated the way he expected.

Truth is coming out at last, Saraki remains the best SP in recent times.

cool

Only PDP piglets and Ipobians want other candidates to emerge as the Senate President other than Dr Lawan, just to spite their fantasized "Zoogeria".

Lawan remains APC's choice since 2015 , only evil and bitter people want senate/executive conflicts, so budget could be delayed and bills rejected because of lack od synergy .

Even in the most advance Democracy like US, Oposition controlled congress resulted into a goverment shutdown over failure in negotiating necessary budget components like Border wall

This folks wants legislators that won't criticize the presidency. It's a pity because this is not good for democracy, the legislators should be a arm that helps check the excesses of the executive arm thereby keeping the president on his toes at all times.


APC as a party doesn't want criticism no matter how right it may be...

God save this country from imploding. Amen

Alot of bills were developed...but most of them were not signed into law by the presidency. In a way, there must be harmony between the executive and legislative arm of government to enhance governance.
