The senator representing Niger East, Senator Sani Musa has refuted a report that he was working with the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan on 10th National Assembly senate president project.
Musa’s reaction followed a report by Vanguard that he was said to have joined Lawan’s camp with other stakeholders to assist the outgoing senate president who was said to have joined the race win it.
The senator who called the paper to rebut the report said it was already public knowledge that he was running for deputy senate president but had to jettison his ambition following the nomination of Senator Jubrin Barau by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) even though his North central zone was not at home with the party’s resolve.
“I am vying for the office of deputy senate president. This is not a new thing. It’s known everywhere. Barau is said to have been nominated by the party. But we in the north central have appealed to the party. The president-elect returned on Saturday and I had a meeting with him. And there are some quite positive developments, only for me to arrive from Lagos and people started forwarding to me this new items.
“And when I read this item, it’s all lies. The Senate President is not contesting for an election. And even he is contesting for an election, that’s his own business. That will not stop me from doing my own aspiration but why do you connect me to it? Why did bring my name? You should have had the simple courtesy of calling me to ask me. And I refute it. You can’t subscribe a content and tell me to accept it”, he said.
