The race for who occupies the principal offices in the 9th has intensified.
In the house of representatives, it appears it might be a smooth ride for APC’s Femi Gbajabiamila and Ahmed Wase as more than 200 members-elect of the green chamber have endorsed their speakership bid.
But the same cannot be said for the red chamber.
The race for who occupies the principal office in the 9th senate has stirred up so much accusations and counter accusations.
A group opposed to the ambition of the former Abia governor Orji Uzor Kalu to be deputy Senate President says he needs to clear his name first from the alleged N7.6 billion fraud charge levelled against him by the EFCC, before aspiring to be deputy Senate President.
Meantime, in the camp of the governing APC, Senator Ali Ndume is yet to step down for the party’s anointed candidate for senate president, Ahmed Lawan.
