A pressure group, Arewa Youth Political Vanguard, has appealed to Senators Ali Ndume and Danjuma Goje not to ruin the opportunity of producing a North East Senate President.
National Chairman of the group, Aminu Tutare, stated this on Tuesday in Yobe.
According to the chairman, all senators especially those from the North East should support Lawan who was endorsed by the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the presidency,
He said: “This is an opportunity for the North East to produce the next senate president, Sen. Ahmad Lawan possesses more credible qualifications for the office.”
“We do not need multiple aspirations to scuttle this opportunity.
“All senators cutting across all political parties from the North and, especially those from the North East, should support Lawan to provide a vibrant leadership that will support President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in handling the security challenges in the North and Nigeria generally.
“The president needs the support of the legislature to effectively fight the security challenge and any contrary decision, will distract government’s attention and, sabotage the people of the North.
“We are calling on the two senators to forfeit their personal aspirations for our collective interests and to provide the needed support for government to find solutions to the problems of the North and Nigeria,” he added.
