The 10th National Assembly is facing a tense conflict as 37 senators-elect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) reject the proposed selection of Senators Godswill Akpabio and Jubrin Barau for Senate President and Deputy Senate President.

President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu conveyed this decision to the senators-elect during an APC leadership meeting in Abuja on Friday night, also revealing his pick for House of Representatives Speaker as Hon. Tajudeen Abbas.

However, many of the dissenting senators-elect cited national unity and cohesion as the basis for their opposition to Akpabio and suggested Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and former Zamfara State governor, Senator Abdulaziz Yari, for the roles of Senate President and Deputy Senate President.

They demanded the president-elect remain neutral during the elections of the 10th National Assembly’s presiding and principal officers.

Some members of the House also raised concerns about the acceptance of Tajudeen Abbas as the House of Representatives Speaker, favouring Hon. Muktar Aliyu Betara for the position.

This conflict has created tension within the National Assembly.
