Tenth NASS: I want to be Senate President – Umahi
Ebonyi State governor, David Umahi, on Wednesday urged the presidential candidates of Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party, respectively Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar to accept defeat and withdraw their election petitions from the court.
He urged them to put forward the interest and unity of Nigeria and allow the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, to take over governance from President Muhammadu Buhari and move the nation forward.
He said: “I plead with Nigerians especially those who contested with them, our dear brother Peter Obi and the former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, to embrace the pact of peace, and accept victory because nothing can be except God says so. Victory of Shetima and Asiwaju came from God and since they believe in God, they should, please, join hands with Asiwaju to rebuild the nation, Nigeria, and reunite our people.
“Let us not waste time in litigation. The work at hand is so much and it is time for the leaders of this country to come together and give back to the society, the children and the unborn children a future.”
Umahi also declared interest in contesting for the Senate President of the 10th National Assembly as he addressed newsmen at the new Government House, Centenary City, Abakaliki.
He said: “Let me also plead and request the leadership of APC and the President and Vice President-elect to please for the sake of equity, justice, and fairness, zone the Senate Presidency to South East and the Speaker for the House of Representatives to the North West. This is for inclusiveness, and this will assure Nigerians that we are on the path for a total reunion.
“I’m asking the Senate, National Assembly to set aside the rules so that we can get the best for the leadership of the Assembly.”
Urging the APC family to zone the Senate Presidency to the Southeast, Umahi said “I’m indicating interest.”
