Senate Presidency: APC chieftain, Garba suggests who should lead 10th Assembly
Adamu Garba, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress
(APC), has called on the leadership of the Senate to consider Distinguished
Senator Barau Jibrin from the North West region of the country for the office
of Senate President.
His comment is coming on the heels of the declaration of
intention by the Senator representing Kano North senatorial district, Jibrin to
join the Senate Presidency race.
According to Garba, Jibrin should be elected as the Senate
President for the 10th Assembly because of his competence and role in Sen. Bola
Ahmed Tinubu’s victory during the Presidential election.
He explained that Jibrin’s competence amongst other
candidates can be measured in different spheres of human endeavor in the 8th
According to him, once the Kano lawmaker becomes Senate
President, he will incorporate the administration of national unity.
Garba said: “So that is why personally, I believe that most
of the aspirants of the Senate Presidency knows that there’s no person that’s
as qualified as Sen. Barau Jibrin. Why did I say so? This man started his
political career in the national assembly in 1999.
“The Red Chamber has been more organized than it has ever
been since 1999, because there has been proper structure of working
relationships with the executive. And if we’ve this mature leadership that
drives this success, why can’t we allow Sen. Barau Jibrin to be able to drive
the Office of the Senate President, so that we can have a coordinated and
better organized and responsible government that meets the needs and yearnings
“That’s why I believe that Sen. Barau Jibrin is the most
qualified, especially looking at his personal antecedents in public service,
and his activities in the Senate as the highest-ranking member.
“Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu gave meagerly Only 8000 votes, but had
40 something thousand votes to himself, in the same election, same people, the
same procedure, the same INEC, the same BVAS, in an election held in the same
day, within the same state. Now how do you draw such a comparison?
“If you go to Sen. Godswill Akpabio, from the South South,
there are reports from several quarters that Senator Godswill Akpabio is
nursing the intention of dropping his ambition for a ministerial position.”
