[Opinion] Senate Presidency: Akpabio/Jubrin Must Be Allowed To Stay As Sacrifice For Equity, Due Respect For President-Elect, Tinubu By Adeboye Adebayo



I have followed with keen interest and objective mind, the power struggles that trailed the announcement of the zoning arrangements of our great party, APC for the leadership of the tenth national assembly and the inputs of our dear President-Elect, Bola Tinubu.

I must say that the struggle is naturally needless but because of who we are as Nigerian politicians, the struggle is needed as a tool for negotiations for the part of the remaining Principal offices and other positions of Committees on the table.

However, stretching it too far to the extent that Nigerians are beginning to see our party to have committed a grave error in the zoning arrangements is not acceptable to us as participatory and contributory party members of the APC and it also does portray the incoming administration of President-elect, Bola Tinubu in a bad light bearing in mind that this is the first political decision that involves him with the National working committee of our great party, APC.

If we all supported him, counted him worthy and capable of being our leader at this time, we should respect him and his fair decisions on issues like this, even if it does not go down well with us, little sacrifices here and there for peace to reign should be considered, after all, it is God, the Almighty whom we all believe is the giver of positions and we should be grateful to Him that we have good health and sound mind to pursue some of these worldly things.

Having said that, I followed the protest meeting held at the National Secretariat of APC between Senators Sani Musa, Abdulazeez Yari & Orji Kalu on one side and the leadership of the party led by its Chairman, Adamu Abdullahi on the other side, wherein trio came with a protest letter to the party office and told the party leaders their intention to disobey the party arrangement and I also listened the chairman, Adamu Abdullahi where he said the party didn’t consult widely before taking the zoning decisions, Hmmnnn!!!!!.

In all of these, I see the clear hand of the current Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, who has threatened us with Saraki’s inglorious scenario at the red chamber despite enjoying the consistent supports of Bola Tinubu tremendously in Cash & kind at the 8th & 9th Assemblies where he is currently holding sway as the Senate President, it is all politics.

I also followed the media narratives of Senator Izunazo of Imo State wherein he made case for himself and the South East zone. I must say every one has a case to make and indeed you can make a good case, bad case or no case at all in your case but the truth is that as Senators-Elect, everyone has a case in this case.

Because it is politics, there is no where those offices will be zoned to that will not cause agitation, hence I humbly urge the Senators-Elect and their supporters to kindly support decision of the National Working Committee of our great party and that of the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a Sacrifice for the Peace, Progress & Unity of our great party and as a great mark of respect & honor for the leader that we love & trust, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
