A group known as Arewa Solidarity Front yesterday said they will prefer Sen Godswill Akpabio, who recently moved to the All Progressives Congress ( APC) to emerge President of the Senate
In a letter addressed to the national chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and jointly signed by comrade Haruna Abdullahi Maikano and Bitrus Magaji the group said Akpabio is a leader that can lead the senate.
The group which urged Oshiomhole to convey their message to the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the PDP added that they have commenced mobilisation for Akpabio and will soon meet with their representatives at the red chamber.
“Our efforts have reached advanced stage, to secure a minimum of 2 million authentic signatures in favour of the vote-of-no confidence on Saraki by Nigerian voters. At the end of this exercise, we intend to meet with all the Senators from our immediate constituency of Northern Nigeria to further drum up support for Sen Godswill Akpabio,” the group said.
The Senate President said in Minna on Wednesday that only two third of the Senators in the National Assembly can remove him.
