Ndume joins ninth assembly senate presidency race

Sen. Muhammad Ali Ndume

Former Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume has formerly joined the race for the Senate Presidency even as he’s seeking the blessing and support of the leadership of All Progressives Congress, APC to contest for the number three position.

Ndume, in a letter of intent dated March 25 and addressed to the national chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, said that his desire to contest for the office was borne out of his desire to help accelerate socio-economic development of the country.

He stated: “Following the successful conduct of the 2019 general elections and the overwhelming victory of our great party, the APC at all levels; I hereby forward my letter of intent to contest for the office of the President of the Senate in the 9th National Assembly.

“I wish to emphasize that my decision to contest for the Senate Presidency is informed by my conviction to contribute my quota to the nation building”.

Ndume, who was the Minority Leader in the 6th House of Representatives and first Majority Leader in the 8th Senate, assured of his capacity to deliver on party policies and programmes, saying “my vast legislative experience and my deep desire to take Nigeria to the next level of development” are reasons for contesting for the exalted office.

The Borno South senator added that calls from respected party members within the North East geo-political zone and other parts of the country, have encouraged his aspiration.

“For these reasons and more, I wish to forward myself for the blessings of the party, my colleagues in the Senate and fellow Nigerians for the post of the President of the Senate”, he stated.

Ndume expressed optimism “that the party leadership will see the desired wisdom in zoning the Senate Presidency to the North-East due to our sterling performance in the 2019 polls, giving the President the second highest votes cast”.

He said the position would enable him to also fulfill the aspirations of the insurgency-ravaged people of the North East whose respite came with the coming of APC government in 2015.
