The National Working Committee (NWC) of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has formally adopted Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for the positions of Deputy Senate President and Hon. Muhammed Idris Wase as Deputy Speaker.

This resolve was reached after emergency meetings which held on Saturday the 8th and Sunday the 9th of June 2019. It effectively ends the aspiration of the South-East, especially former Abia State Governor Orji Uzor Kalu, as to emerge the country’s next Deputy Senate President.

According to a statement by APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the committee arrived at their decision after wide consultations with President Muhammadu Buhari and party stakeholders, including APC governors.

Recall that the party had earlier announced the duo of Senator Ahmed Lawan and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as the party’s candidates for the positions of Senate President and Speaker of House Representatives respectively.

Mr Issa-Onilu’s communique further stated that all elected APC members of the Senate and House of Representatives are hereby directed to fully mobilise as a united force behind the party’s choice.

It also stated that members who have earlier signified interests in these positions are urged to support the party’s decisions as loyal and committed members of APC by working with other members to ensure the emergence of the adopted candidates.
