Kaduna- Malam Shehu Sani, a Senator-elect under the All Progressive Congress (APC), on Sunday said that the next Senate President must emerge from a free and fair process devoid of any sectional interest.
Sani, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna decried the acrimony generated by those contesting for the position under the APC, saying it was not in the best interest of the party.
“The new Senate President must emerge from a process that is free from ethnic, religious or sectional sentiments.
“The senate president must reflect the spirit and emerging order, and must follow through the programmes and manifestoes of the APC,’’ Sani said.
He advised those campaigning for the position to allow the APC to make a formal announcement as to where the position had been zoned to.
Sani was particularly unhappy with those “currently engaged in name-dropping”, in their desperation for the position.
The civil rights activist, who would represent Kaduna Central at the Senate, said he would not endorse any of the aspirants, if the party had not done so. (NAN)
