Senator Ali Ndume, a major contender for the position of the Senate President in the incoming Ninth National Assembly, has reiterated his resolve to contest on the floor of the Senate on June 11.
Ndume who stated this in an interview with newsmen said he had no reason to visit President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in order to step down for Senator Ahmad Lawan, the preferred candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the position.
He further nullified the claims on social media which said he was invited to the Villa by Buhari, in a bid for him to shelve his ambition to contest for the Senate President position.
He 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.”
