Here are 10 things who did not know about New President of the Senate, Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan:

1.Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan was born in 1959.

2.He became a senator in 2007.

3.He is a Nigerian senator who represents the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the Yobe North Constituency of Yobe State.

4.He received a bachelor’s degree in Geography from the University of Maiduguri, a master’s degree in remote sensing from Ahmadu Bello University and a doctorate degree in remote sensing/GIS from Cranfield University, UK.

5.Elected to the House of Representatives for the northern state of Yobe in 1999, at different times Lawan chaired the House Committees on education and agriculture.

6.In 2008, he was a member of the National Assembly’s Joint Committee on Constitution Review.

7.In 2009, as chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Accounts, Lawan initiated and sponsored the Desertification Control Commission Bill.

8.In August 2009, Senator Lawan spoke against the proposed Kafin Zaki Dam. He stated that the Tiga Dam and Challawa Gorge Dam had already reduced water flow drastically, and the Jama’are River was now the main source of water in the Yobe River.

So igbos are gradually being cut out of Nigerias politics, they have no idea even Nigerians are tired of their ranting and are already planning their biafuro for them secretly. Just look at how ekweremadu is shamelessly playing victim and tackling omo-agege to be a freaking deputy senate president....All hail biafuro. grin

I hope he understands what that arm of government stands for and should never put the interest of the party/president before that of the nation.

He should be a true LEADER.
