    Senator David Mark, dont think that Mai Gaskiya is the only one “we are sending to Abuja” with BROOM, we are sending an Army of Senators & Reps” to ensure that you SIR are one of the first to swept into dustbin as Senate President. SE will provide the next Senate President, notswithstanding the less than vigorous support for APC. Day MAY have finally broken in Nigeria.

      Admittedly,APC was severely rigged out of the SE and SS,but how can you justify your position of SE providing the next Senate President when the APC has not won any senatorial seat there? I think one can’t provide what he does not have.

        @Mosaku 147, my suggestion is more out of a desire for unity, rather than whether it is deserved. When the new APC govt. is sworn in on May 29th, that region will be shut out of leadership positions. i think encouraging an environment of “belonging” to Igbos will help in that most noble goal of National Unity. Magnanimity is something that the victors must always aspire to, especially when the losing side are brothers & sisters.

          Trust Nigerian Politicians. Before they are sworn in, some will decamp to APC, if not, it comes to South-South and Edo North will have it.
