The earlier announced sole candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Senate Presidency, Senator Ahmed Lawan failed to attend the elections which saw Senator Bukola Saraki emerge as the occupant of the seat, reports say. Saraki was unanimously elected as Senate President today, June 9, 2015, by 57 out of 108 Senators, according to Leadership.
Lawan and 50 other Senators were reportedly absent from the chamber of the upper legislative house where the elections held. He was initially chosen by the APC as its sole candidate for the position via a mock election, a development which was rejected by Saraki. Saraki was subsequently adopted as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with the party urging its legislator-members to vote him as Senate President. The APC is yet to issue a response on the development.

Tinubu's Game plan was to present Akume but later agreed to Lawan and Akume as deputy these are people he can influence especially Akume, no consideration for south south and south east. He felt he would be able to secure a yoruba speaker of the Lower house once he is able to give north east the senate presidency. The south south and south east who were predominantly PDP in the house snookered him by adopting Saraki and when APC members stylishly boycotted thinking they have been divided and lost to Saraki they left a loophole which gave PDP the voting majority for Ike Ekweremadu to be elected as deputy senate prsido. Now Judiciary, Legislature and Executive will go to the North Osibanjo is just a stooge and key parastatals like Army, immigrations, customs is already with the North, we will see the ministerial list and SSG where it goes. All this is happening because Tinubu and his tribesmen think they are smart and calculative but they do not know that you do not just ignore anyone because God ignores no one.
