Former Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume (APC-Borno South) has written the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, to inform him of his intention to run for the office of the President of the Senate of the ninth National Assembly.
In a letter of intent dated March 25, 2019, and addressed to Oshiomhole, the lawmaker specifically sought the blessing of the party to actualise his aspiration.
Ndume said he is “throwing his hat into the ring believing that the Senate President position would be zoned to the North East geopolitical zone” where he hails from.
He said the decision to seek election into the office was borne out of his desire to help accelerate socioeconomic development of the nation.
He said, “Following the successful conduct of the 2019 general election 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.”
