The statement also disclosed that the governor inaugurated Committee members for the May 29 handover.

Why South-East Does Not Deserve Senate Presidency – ACF Chieftain

A leader of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Musa Saidu said the South-East shouldn’t look for the Senate President role.

Saidu said the region should not be considered for that position because they didn’t vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the elections, instead, the South-East gave most of their votes to the Labour Party (LP).

He also mentioned that the South-East would not have a say if Tinubu had lost the election. Saidu believes that the Senate Presidency is not “for free” and people have to work for it.

The ACF chieftain added that giving the position to the South-South isn’t a bad idea because they voted more for the APC.
