10th NASS: I’m Not Contesting For Senate President – Lawan

2023: Lawan Out As INEC Releases Final List Of Candidates For National Elections

Senate President Ahmad Lawan has said he is not seeking re-election for the position he currently occupies in the 10th National Assembly.

Gatekeepers News reports that Lawan in a statement on Tuesday, said he has neither informed anyone he was vying for the seat nor did he hold any meeting about it.

Since the All Progressives Congress (APC) announced former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, and Senator representing Kano North, Barau Jibrin as its choices for senate president and deputy, there have been moves to go against the party.

Lawan, who represents Yobe North, added that as a stakeholder in the All Progressives Congress (APC), he is finding a lasting solution to the 10th assembly leadership tussle.

The Senate President said, “I have read some media reports that I have joined the race for the presidency of the 10th senate. Ordinarily, I would not have responded to these reports but when lies are not refuted, they have the tendency to create an illusion of truth.

“The truth is that I have never told anyone or held a meeting with anyone that I am running for the presidency of the 10th Senate. So the public should discountenance the reports.

“The fact remains that I am part of the leadership of our great party, the APC, seeking to find solutions to the numerous issues arising from the contests for the leadership of the 10th national assembly and I will continue to remain focused on that.”
