The assumption that the Senate will rubber-stamp President Muhammadu Buhari has been dismissed by Senator Ahmed Lawan if he becomes the 9th National Assembly Senator.
Lawan making this known to newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja during a visit by the Youth Forum of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that the party will be in trouble if Buhari leaves the party.
Been the president of the Ninth Senate front runner, Lawan said that “My campaign is based on a slogan of leading a Senate and National Assembly that will work for Nigeria.
“We are not going for the Senate presidency because of the name but to make a serious and positive difference in the governance of the country.
“We will work with Mr President and his administration to fulfil all his campaign promises that he promised Nigerians in 2015 and 2019, which are the same.
“2023 will be a test period for the APC. That is when the party will know whether it is solid enough or not.
“Today, APC is largely revolving around President Buhari. Take away the President and the present APC will be in trouble”.
