Mallam Uba Sani, the senator-elect to represent Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, has declared that Senator Ahmad Lawan’s aspiration to become Senate President in the ninth Assembly has been sealed.
He made the declaration in a press release on Thursday, after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Senators Ahmed Lawan and Danjuma Goje, in the State House Abuja.
The press release reads: “It is sealed. By the grace of God Almighty, Senator Ahmed Lawan will lead the 9th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as its President.
“I can confirm that following the uncommon leadership role, His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari played this morning, Senators-elect of the ruling APC have firmly resolved to speak with one voice and stand by the choice of the party, Senator Ahmed Lawan.
“It must also be placed on record that this would have not been possible without the significant role of the phenomenal Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai who played a pivotal role in achieving this very important political milestone. His leadership style is one that has placed democracy and good governance at the forefront of our nation’s affairs.
“We are thankful to the highly respected Senator Danjuma Goje for graciously accepting to step down from the race for the Senate Presidency and instead work with all loyal party men and women for the emergence of Senator Lawan as the President of the Senate.
“From what transpired at today’s meeting I am convinced more than ever before that President Muhammadu Buhari is truly poised and able to take our great nation to the next level. Nigerians can be rest assured that the 9th Senate will be robust and responsive and shall work for Nigerians.
“Given that It is evident Nigerians are yearning for good leadership irrespective of party affiliations, Senators of the APC are determined to work very closely and amicably with our Distinguished colleagues from other political parties to make the 9th Senate under Senator Ahmed Lawan the most effective and impactful since the return of civil democratic rule in Nigeria in 1999,” he said.
