More drama as Borno leaders, elders root for Ndume as Senate President

Leaders and elders from Borno State have called on former Senate Leader, Mohammed Ali Ndume, to join the race for the office of the Senate President of the ninth National Assembly.

Speaking under the aegis of Concerned Borno Citizens, the group comprised of former governors, former Ministers and other politicians said Ndume was a loyal party man and possessed the right quality and experience to lead the Assembly.

The former Nigerian Ambassador to Pakistan, Dauda Danladi, who addressed journalists on behalf of the group in Abuja on Thursday said Ndume’s Senate Presidency would ensure rapid development for the country.

Danladi said, “At this critical moment of our quest for credible leadership, we give glory to God Almighty for the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yeml Osinbajo.

“There is no doubt that the Ninth National Assembly has a critical role to play if government is to actualise all its developmental projects, programs and policies that will propel Nigeria into the industrialised world in the near future. Hence a cooperative partnership-driven National Assembly that will support, encourage and work with the executive to accelerate the achievement of socioeconomic objectives of the Government cannot be overemphasised.

“It is in this regard that we the Concerned Citizens of Borno are coming forward to urge Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume to contest for the office of the President of the Senate in the Ninth National Assembly. We are convinced that Senator Ndume possesses all the qualities and requirements to hold the office of the Senate President being a loyal party man and a ranking Senator.”
