Again, President Bola Tinubu woos Senator Elects for Godswill Akpabio
President Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has again appealed to lawmakers to support the party’s choice of consensus candidate stating that the Renewed Hope Elephant is big enough for everyone to share.
The president at the meeting with the Senator Elects in Abuja on Wednesday which ended around 11 pm, told the senators-elect to toe the lines of the party’s zoning arrangement.
The APC had zoned the president of the Senate to the South–South, with Senator Godswill Akpabio as the preferred candidate, and Senator Jubrin Barau from North-West for deputy Senate President.
A source at the meeting disclosed that the president told the lawmakers that accepting the party’s decision was the right thing to do to support the ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda of his administration.
“At this point in our history and the challenges facing us as a new administration, all hands must be on deck to salvage the unpalatable situation facing the nation. We must see the situation as a pan-Nigerian project for the executive and the legislature to work out solutions to the challenges of the nation,” Tinubu told the senators-elect.
