North Central will not settle for anything below deputy senate president — Sani

Though his intention is to contest for the seat of Senate President in the 10th Senate, Senator Sani Musa (Niger East), on Tuesday, said that the North Central will not settle for anything less than Deputy Senate President in case none of the contestants from the geopolitical region made it the powerful position in June.

Musa, who spoke to journalist in Abuja on Tuesday said:” No office deserved to be zoned to the North Central than the Office of the Senate President, but …the National Chairman of APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu requested that we all keep our intentions until when the party decide to release the zoning formula.
“I would not want to pre-empt the party, I will wait for the decision of the party. Whatever is the interest of the North Central as one of the geopolitical zones that gave the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the highest votes. If you look at the difference we gave to APC and the votes we gave to PDP, we have the largest.

“I do know there will be nothing less than the Deputy Senate President because that is what will be fair to us.”

The Niger senator, however, said his ambition is to run for Senate Presidency and use the office to collaborate with the executive in turning things around for good in the country.
