he Senator-Elect, Lagos Central, Mr. Wasiu Eshinlokun-Sanni, has advised the APC leadership to balance the Muslim/Muslim ticket of the executive arm of the incoming administration with a Christian Senate President from the South-South.
Eshinlokun-Sanni, currently the Deputy Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, made the call during an award presentation ceremony held in his office at the assembly complex, Lagos.
Eshinlokun-Sanni said the APC leadership should also consider the three Senate Presidential aspirants based on their contributions to the electoral success of the party in the last election.
He said: “For the 10th Assembly, I believe the party should play a prominent role. There are so many factors that must be considered.
“He or she must come from the South and must be a Christian, so that the noise about Muslim/Muslim ticket must be nipped in the bud.
“As we speak, there are three senators that are qualified for the Senate President seat. Senators Godswill Akpabio, Orji Uzor Kalu and Osita Izunazo.
“So we have to consider the aspirants based on the contributions of each region to the electoral success of the party in the last election,” he said.
The Senator-Elect said the North Central had a right to complain, however, they should not forget that there were other positions that they could take.
He said the government and the party would have to find some positions to give them since it was not a rocket science.
