Tinubu Believes In Igbo Senate Presidency

One of the 22-member Presidential Transition Council chaired by Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha has revealed that Bola Tinubu believes in Igbo senate presidency and he wants to stop what happened in 2015 in the National Assembly to occur again this year. The source who is a lawmaker spoke in an interview with Nigerian Tribune that Bola Tinubu is trying to ensure that there is equity and justice to all the geopolitical zones. And as a result he has planned to announce his preferred Igbo senate president to the APC leaders in a closed door meeting that has been scheduled to hold on Monday.

The source further revealed that Bola Tinubu believes that the South-East is very paramount to him even though in 2015, the South-East (Igbos) were told to blame themselves for not voting for APC which could have given them the Senate Presidency. And in 2023, there’s no excuse because the Southeast despite the massive votes they gave to the Labour Party, they still voted for six APC senators, some of whom are ranking lawmakers and Bola Tinubu has decided to choice between these six APC senators for balance of power.

He said, “Tinubu is fully committed a Senate President of Southeast (Igbo) extraction. I can confirm because he believes it is the right thing to do and the move will also calm frayed nerves in the South-East. He also wants to prevent unnecessary spending, bad blood lobbying which might culminate to hijacking of the National Assembly like it happened in 2015”.
