Ali Ndume, a former Senate Leader has condemned the endorsement of Ahmed Lawan for Senate presidency seat by Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He expressed his dissatisfaction while addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday. According to him the choice of Lawan was unpopular decision, unilaterally carried out by Oshiomhole.
“All my colleagues at the occasion yesterday (Monday) were shocked when Adams Oshiomhole unilaterally announced his decision to endorse Lawan as candidate of the party,” said Ndume.
“It is an unpopular decision because I am sure that President Buhari and other leaders of the party are not in support of that action. None of the stakeholders was also consulted.”
The senator added that he liaise with leaders of the party in the North East and his colleagues who are supporting his aspiration, before taking a final position on the issue.
