The Sustainable Democracy Agenda (SUDA), a pro-democracy group, has urged senators-elect to support the bid of Sen. Ahmad Lawan, representing Yobe North, for the position of President of the 9th Senate.
The group’s convener, Malam Ibrahim Usman, made the appeal in a statement in Abuja on Sunday.
Usman said the move would ensure a united and vibrant senate ready to face the onerous legislative works ahead.
“Our position on this is in line with the Senate. He has remained one of the most productive lawmakers since the beginning of the present dispensation in 1999.
