Who takes over from Senate president Bukola Saraki at the end of 8th Senate? The race is on, those who have what it takes are positioning themselves to get the support of the PDP if the APC refused.
While Lawan did not get the opportunity to go head-to-head with Saraki, Gbajabiamila lost to Dogara.
However, Saraki is out of the way, having left the APC for the PDP and lost his re-election bid. Dogara is also not expected to put a fight as PDP, his new party, does not have enough numbers in the house of reps.
TheCable reports that Buhari favours Lawan and Gbajafor the top jobs. APC has 25 seats more than PDP in the senate while the ruling party is clearly ahead of PDP by 100 seats in the green chamber.
Last week when he announced his ambition to lead the senate, Lawan, who represents Yobe north, said the ruling party will do things differently in choosing the leadership of the 9th national assembly because it had learnt its lessons in 2015.
“We are not in any way thinking that we will have crises; it is not what we are envisaging at all. But let me say that our party, the APC, must have learnt its lessons, and therefore, the party leadership will do something differently this time,” he had said at a press conference in Abuja.
