Why Lawan Will Become The Senate President
The chances of Senator Ahmed Lawan emerging as the next Senate President are high, as 64 senate members have endorsed him ahead of the inauguration of the 9th National Assembly scheduled to hold on Tuesday, June 11.
The senators-elect from all political parties, including 62 Senators-elect from the All Progressives Congress, APC, one from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and another from the Young Peoples Party, YPP, have shown their support to Lawan.
According to Senator Yahaya Abdullahi from Kebbi, Chairman of Lawan Campaign Group, on Saturday, the senators-elect decided to endorse Lawan to prevent a repeat of 2015.
President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling party, All Progressive Congress, are in support of Lawan for the plum job.
