Gaya declares for ninth senate deputy presidency


Chairman of the Senate committee on works, Sen. Kabiru Gaya

Former Senate Deputy Whip, Kabiru Gaya of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Kano State has formally declared to contest for the position of the deputy senate president in the ninth senate.

The former governor, who has been re-elected for a fourth term, is the current chairman of the committee on works.

Gaya explained that it was not too much if the North West produces the deputy senate president “ the zone gave the highest vote to President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2019 general elections.”

Advancing reasons why the zone should produce the deputy senate president, Gaya said there were strong indications that the APC leadership was considering zoning the speakership of the House of Representatives to the South West, deputy speaker to North Central and the senate presidency to the North East.

He said: “If the six zones are accommodated in the sharing formula for the National Assembly leadership positions, four of them contributed tremendously to the election of Mr. President.”
