administrations in the country.
“Borno in particular is most suited because it has suffered years of marginalization’’, Ndume said.
He said representatives from the state had not been considered for positions in the National Assembly since 1999.
“Although Gombe got the slot of the Deputy Speaker of the House of
Representatives some time, Borno and Yobe had never been considered’’, Ndume said.
He said it was unfair for some senators in the North Central zone to aspire to the office of senate president.
“The North Central zone had had its share as the current senate president is from the zone. I think the North East deserves the seat this time around’’, Ndume said.
“We believe that the girls are kept somewhere alive by their abductors. The military must strive hard to rescue them to end the agony of their parents and the abductees’’’, Ndume said. (NAN)
