An aspirant for the position of Senate president, Senator Osita Izunaso, yesterday vowed not to quit the race, saying his aspiration to lead the Senate of the 10th National Assembly is in the best interest of the nation.
He urged the APC leaders to douse the tension generated by the controversial zoning formula by producing a zoning arrangement that would ensure unity and national cohesion.
According to Izunaso, the president-elect, Tinubu; the outgoing president, Muhammadu Buhari, and APC under the leadership of Senator Adamu, should as a matter of importance come up with a new zoning arrangement.
Izunaso, who spoke during a parley with media executives in his campaign office in Abuja said the expectations of Nigeria and the entire world were high on the incoming administration and that no efforts should be spared by the present political leaders of the country in meeting the yearnings of the people.
The journalist cum lawyer and ranking senator-elect from Imo West Senatorial District, Imo State said he agreed with the position of the NWC on the need for “further and better consultations” by all the necessary stakeholders of the party in reaching a workable zoning formula for the principal offices of the National Assembly.
