As the battle for positions in the incoming 8th National Assembly gets hotter, the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has stated categorically that he has no preffered candidate for any of the positions being contested for particularly the President of the Senate.
The President-elect made this known is a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Garba Shehu released on Wednesday, 13th May, 2015.
According to Buhari in the statement, “I am prepared to work with the leaders that the House or Senate selects. It doesn’t matter who the persons are or where they are from.
“There is due process for the selection of leaders of the National Assembly and I will not interfere in that process.”
The President-elect stated that the belief that he was supporting a particular candidate was borne out of what had been happening in the past which he is ready to dispense with in view of the new positive change the APC leadership at the centre is bringing onto the table.
