It’s only proper to zone Senate Presidency to South-South — PANDEF

The socio-political group, the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to zone the position of Senate President to the South-South geopolitical zone in the interest of equity and fairness.

The APC won a majority of the legislative seats during the elections with over 55 Senate seats out of 109 and over 160 out of 360 House of Representatives seats.

APC members like Orji Kalu, Jibrin Barau, Godswill Akpabio, Dave Umahi, Ahmad Lawan, Ali Ndume, Abdulaziz Yari, Osita Izunaso, amongst others have expressed interest in the Senate Presidency and the party is expected to release its zoning formula after the Ramadan fast, according to Senate Spokesperson, Ajibola Bashiru. However PANDEF's spokesman, Ken Robinson, in a statement said it is only “proper” for the ruling party which has a majority of Senators-elect, to zone the position to the South-South zone
