By Andy Chukwu

The Campaign Organisation of Ahmad Lawan for Senate President has declared that 60 senators-elect of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are backing his candidacy for the office of Senate President in the ninth National Assembly.

Jibrin Barau, Senator representing Kano North and Secretary of the campaign organisation, who disclosed this at press conference on Saturday, read out the list of the senators-elect.

Barau said the endorsement of Ifeanyi Uba, a senator-elect of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), brings the total number of those who have signed the endorsement register of Lawan to 61.

Only four senators of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have so far endorsed the candidacy of Lawan.

“The APC is the immediate base of senator Ahmad Lawan. They have signed, some of them have even come out to show their endorsement for him,” the secretary said.

“When you take away the three senators from Zamfara, we now have 61 but 60 are APC senators-elect and one is YPP.

“In total the APC senators-elect in total are 62, those who have not signed for us are only two. You can guess for those people.”
