A Senator representing Anambra south senatorial district, Andy Uba, has laid out his plans to become Senate President if he’s re-elected
The APC senator was speaking in Orumba north local government area of Anambra state.
He also claimed that Buhari wanted to make an Igbo man Senate President in 2015 but then found no one who could fit the bill.
“I’ve a better chance to become the senate president, having been in the senate for eight years and attained the status of a ranking senator,” Uba said.
According to the Punch, Uba added: “President Buhari in 2015 was ready to make an Igbo man the senate president, but he could not find a ranking Igbo senator from the area in the APC, then.”
He also urged his fellow party members to vote for Buhari and claimed that “senate presidency is a bigger position than even the governor of a state.”
“So, if we get the senate presidency, it will mean having something more than a governor in our district,” he added
“In 2015, did you see this kind of crowd converge on any part of the state for APC? It did not happen. The people were aloof and not ready to listen to anyone then who would talk to them about the APC or Buhari, but today the story is different.
“The people know us, and when we approach them and tell them that APC is the best place to be, they don’t argue about it.”
