35 Senators Endorse Bukola Saraki For Senate President

Senators of the like mind are here today at the retreat
organized by our dear Party All Progressive Congress, which is meant to equip
and empower Senators-Elect of the 8th Assembly to prepare them toward the
challenges ahead. We commend the leadership of our party for this timely and
well-focused exercise.
The issue of National Assembly leadership is about
integrity, competence, discipline and leadership skills and not about fixing of
candidates just for mere horse-trading. Our stand is about electing a senator
who eventually becomes the chairman of National Assembly and relates with the
executive on behalf of Nigerians, fellow Senators and the National Assembly as
an institution.

Furthermore leadership of National Assembly, is about the
Senator that has the wherewithal to stabilize the legislative institution,
working with the executive and judicial arm of government to be effective and
perform to their optimal capacity.
In addition, we are aware of the fact that ALL Senators from
the North Central zone has taken a firm position that they are only interested
in the office of the Senate President which has been earlier zoned by the
National Working Committee of our party and we are also aware that North
Central Senators have resolved to abide by the resolution of the zone on a
single candidate and anything short of this is an attempt to jeopardize the collective
interest of the zone.
Of the 59 Senators of the APC, 35 of us present here today
hereby reaffirm our collective commitment and resolution to ensure that the
candidature of Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki as the Senate President of 8th
We also resolved that the office of the Deputy Senate President
be zoned to the North East.
