The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Adamu, is advising the party’s endorsed aspirants for the National Assembly leadership positions to be mindful of an upset during the inauguration of the 10th legislature.
Adamu, during a meeting with Senator Godswill Akpabio, endorsed for the Senate presidency and Deputy Senate Presidential aspirant, Jibrin Barau, urged them to arrive early for the inauguration on June 13.
The two favoured candidates led a delegation of 41 senators to the national secretariat in Abuja to brief the party on the progress of their consultation with other aggrieved aspirants, stakeholders and senators in the upper chamber.
Senator Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara in 2015 shunned the party’s directive by arriving early to contest the leadership positions and they emerged as the Senate President and the House of Representative Speaker respectively.
