Following the withdrawal of Senator Danjuma Goje from the race for the Senate Presidency after a crucial meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday, another frontline aspirant for the country’s number three position, Senator Ali Ndume, has made known his stance to challenge for the position on the floor of the Senate on June 11.
Briefing newsmen in Abuja yesterday, Ndume disclosed that he had no plans of visiting President Buhari at the Presidential Villa in order to step down for Senator Ahmed Lawan like Senator Goje did, stressing that his quest for the Senate Presidency still stands.
The former Senate Leader said, “Nobody has invited me to the Villa. There won’t be cause for it. My quest to contest the Senate President election Insha Allah on Tuesday next week stands.”
