Breaking: Oshiomhole Wins In Appeal Court, Remains APC Chairman

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said he can not choose who becomes the Senate President of the 9th National Assembly.

Speaking on Channels TV’s Hard Copy on Friday, Oshiomhole said all he had done about the issue was to engage members of the National Assembly and members of the executive.

“Do I look like someone who can appoint and impose somebody on the Senate, even if I wished to?” he asked.

The former Edo State governor noted that he only has the power to “persuade, the power to negotiate and the power to point out what might go wrong” if the party does not organise itself as to obtain a process for electing leadership.

Oshiomhole also assured that each of the six geopolitical zones will have a principal officer in the Senate and a principal officer in the House of Representatives.

“What that Principal officer will be, has not been resolved, we are currently discussing the zoning,” he added.
