0 221

Senator Ahmed Lawan, a frontline contender for the President
of the Senate, has revealed that he expects more lawmakers elected on the
platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to endorse him.

Lawan spoke with journalists in Abuja yesterday, adding that
some PDP senators will soon endorse him openly.

According to him, discussions and meetings were already
ongoing.

Lawan also dismissed the claim that the recent endorsement
of his candidacy by Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, indicated a crack in the camp of
the PDP.

He said, “We are expecting PDP senators-elect to endorse. I
am also expecting the entire caucus to endorse my candidacy.

“Particularly to the endorsement by Senator Peter Nwoboshi
who is a serving senator and also a PDP lawmaker is sign of good thing.

“What the endorsement means is not a crack in the fence of
the PDP. What the endorsement mean is that feeling of patriotism.

“That feeling of the necessity of all of us that will be in
the ninth Senate to work together in national interest.

“We know that this administration has done a lot in the last
four years, getting out of recession to a growth per cent of between two and
three of the GDP.

“But we are still faced with that challenge of expanding the
economy, diversifying the economy or providing employment for our teeming youth
who need to have an accommodation in the economy.”
