Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, a former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, the party in power, stated he is working toward a consensus agreement that would result in the election of the next Senate President.
Oshiomhole, a senator-elect for the Etsako Central Senatorial District, endorsed Godswill Akpabio in an interview with journalists that followed a meeting with other senators-elect in Abuja.
He stressed that the new administration get off to a strong start and emphasized that he “is fully on board the Godswill Akpabio’s project for the Senate President of the 10th National Assembly.”
The former Governor of Edo State admonished the incoming Senators to avoid a tussle between the executive and the legislature, which he maintained wouldn’t be in the interest of the nation.
To create a conducive environment for the smooth takeoff of the incoming administration, Oshiomhole assured that efforts would be made to bring all the interests for the 10th Senate President together to be in line with what the President-elect desired.
He said: “My concern is to see that the next administration starts on a good note and as an ex-governor, I will not encourage any tussle between the executive and the legislature.
“Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu the President-elect is my man. I’m for Asiwaju. I eat and dine with Asiwaju. I can knock on Asiwaju bedroom anytime. Since this is the best for Asiwaju, that is the best for me, for Nigeria and for my people.
“As a former National Chairman of the APC, I’m ready to put all issues behind and work for the actualization of the Akpabio project,” he said.
