The All Progressives Congress (APC) has commence a lsat minutes push to convince Senetor Ali Ndume step.down for the party’s choice, Ahmed Lawal.
Briefing newsmen after a caucus meeting between the Governors, Senators and members of the House of Representatives under the platform of the party in Abuja yesterday, National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, said the meeting is basically to firm up all the conversations and lobbying that have gone on and have already had a meeting with specific conclusions.
“We have all agreed as a caucus to endorse distinguished Sen. Ahmed Lawan as APC candidate for the presidency of the senate and distinguished Sen. Omo-Agege for the deputy presidency of the senate.
“For now we are still trying to talk to Ali Ndume. I believe that he is a democrat. He understands that in a democracy, it is important that he listens to the voice of the majority and accept the decisions of the majority. I mean it is all about sacrifice. Like I said, I do not know of anybody who has been elected who is not qualified to become the Senate President, and senators are equal.
“For those who have stepped down, they have done that in recognition of the fact that at a particular point in time, only one person will emerge and i believe that my dear friend Sen. Ali Ndume will not be a lone ranger. He will abide by the spirit of the party and he will respect our overall leader who is the president of our country, who is also the leader of our party. I do not have any fear, I believe Ndume will accept the will of the majority.
“All those that have stepped down as a mark of respect for the party leadership are all qualified and they are all unanimous to back the candidates of the party”, he said.
