Lawan Woos PDP Senators With Juicy Chairmanship Slots by Islie: 5:38am On Jun 10
Fred Itua, Abuja

Major contenders for the position of the president of the Senate are making a last-minute push to consolidate on their successes.

The two contenders are Ahmad Lawan and Mohammed Ali Ndume from Yobe and Borno states respectively.

The APC and President Muhammadu Buhari have endorsed Lawan for the post. APC senators-elect equally gave him their support.

But Ndume said the endorsement of Lawan means nothing, as he has the votes of the senators-elect based on promises made.

In the midst of these, Daily Sun gathered that Lawan is making efforts to seal a deal with the caucus of the PDP.

Sources revealed that Lawan has offered to concede some committee chairmanship positions to members of the PDP if they would support him to emerge as Senate president.

Some of the committees, which incidentally were occupied by PDP members in the eighth Senate, include Power, Niger Delta, Agriculture, Interior and Petroleum (Downstream).

Based on precedents, ranking members are usually chairmen of committees. Besides Appropriation, Media and Publicity, and Legal matters, which are exclusive to ruling parties, members of other political parties can head other committees.

Meanwhile, five PDP senators-elect have openly identified with Ndume. They are Clifford Ordia, Mathew Urhoghide, Gershom Bassey, Abba Moro and Lawali Hassan Anka.

Speaking with Daily Sun, Senator Ordia said some PDP members were openly identifying with Lawan because the leadership of the party has not given an express instruction on who to support.

He said since the PDP may not field a candidate, the right thing to do was to support an APC senator with the right credentials to lead the next Senate.

Said he: “I am a member of the PDP and I have the right to support whoever I want. But as a loyal party man, I can’t go against my party. Unfortunately, my party, the PDP, has not taken a decision on who it will support.

“I think we are first senators before our political parties. As a Senate, we need someone with the right credentials like Lawan to lead the chamber. So, supporting him is in order.”

The desperation of Sen. Ahmad Lawan is becoming increasingly suspicious to the extent that he has offered to concede some committee chairmanship positions to members of the PDP if they would support him.


How best will you describe this level of desperation from an incoming stooge?

It won't be an easy ride if he wins. In order to please his sponsors, he will lose the confidence of his colleagues. And vice versa

cheesy Guess it's the same "juicy" committees that Adams Oshiomole was running his mouth and having a seizure that the APC as a party will never share with anyone.

Lawan is a stooge based on this desperation.Senators should vote with their conscience.Meanwhile never trust the words of any APC member.

At least he’s not as desperate as your GODFATHER who traded his party’s DSP seat to the opposition just to become SP at all cost.

Kid, you must think his challenger hasn't promised more to the poverty development party. Didn't Sarathief promise and offer more?

# Russian President, Vladimir Putin strikes Africa again
Africa will never be independent, Africans believe in Europeans, Americans and Chinese, more than themselves. They do not trust each other. African engineers/technocrats do not have the platform to practice what they have studied. They hire Chinese people to build roads for themselves. A white man will commit a crime in Africa but no action will be taken because the African authorities consider us whites as half gods, which is far from the truth. A black man can be kidnapped in Europe, harassed and even killed, but no African authority can even challenge him. Africans present themselves as weak, hopeless people, especially when dealing with Europeans and Americans. They are their own enemies. They hate each other, allowing their colonial masters to continue to explore their resources. As far as I know, Africa is the chosen continent, chosen by God, it is a blessed continent and it is time for Africans to realize that they are in a place where Americans, Europeans and Chinese people are jealous and would like to be. Do not compare the African weather with any other weather. African soil can feed all Europe, America and Asia, but their problem is one, "THEIR LEADERS". As far as I'm concerned, their best president has always been Gaddafi.
