Senator Sani Musa, a contender for the 10th Senate Presidency has denied reports stating that he had withdrawn from the race to become the next Senate President.
Musa, who represents Niger East Senatorial District made the clarification in a statement he personally signed on Monday.
He said, “My attention has been drawn to the story that I have shelved my aspiration to be elected as a Presiding Officer in the 10th National Assembly.
“I guessed it is the imagination of the writer of that newspaper’s story.I am still in the race and will only decide otherwise if the zoning arrangement of our great party, the APC, did not favour my zone for the office of the President of the Senate or the Deputy.
“I appeal to my Distinguished Senators-elect, my constituents and the general public to remain steadfast and be hopeful for a united and robust 10th National Assembly that will be independent and committed partner to our incoming administration,” he added.
