Senate Presidency: Senators-Elect Warn Buhari Against Tinubu
Senate Presidency: Senators-elect warns Buhari against handing over National Assembly to Tinubu
Senators-elect have warned President Muhammadu Buhari against handing over National Assembly to National leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The Senators-elect, said the recommendation by the APC that the Senate Leader, Ahmad Lawan be considered for the Senate presidency was grand plan to handover parliament to Tinubu.
The lawmakers added that the touting of the House leader, Femi Gbajabiamila as Speaker was in the same direction.
Senators-elect elect revealed that both Lawan and Gbajabiamila are cronies of Tinubu .
One of the lawmakers-elect, said since Tinubu had produced the Vice President in the person of Yemi Osinbajo and Oshiomhole, other contributors to the victory of the party, should also be rewarded.
“Lawan and Gbajabiamila are the candidates of Asiwaju. If they have their ways, it means Tinubu has extended his hold to the parliament. Already, he has the Vice President and the National chairman. What else is left for others ?” He said anonymously.
He added: ” People are just keeping quiet because of their respect for Buhari who believes that it’s payback time for Tinubu.
“It’s shouldn’t be so, at all because other people contributed and they should be rewarded, accordingly.”
The Senators said “the quest by Tinubu to conquer the National Assembly was simply to lay the foundation for his 2023 presidential ambition.
“He deliberately brought his colloquium to Abuja, as against Lagos, his usual venue because he wants to conquer the country. He feels that it’s time for him to do so.
“He has pocketed Lagos and he is leaving no stone unturned to pocket the country.
“Some of us are of the view that neutral candidates should be considered for the National Assembly leadership and not those whose allegiance will be for Tinubu and not the country.”
