Wamakko Emerged Chairman, Northern Senators Forum

Wamakko Emerged Chairman, Northern Senators Forum”

We announce his replacement with Senator Aliyu Wamakko immediately. When we assumed office, Senator Ahmed Lawan tendered the sum of N70 million to the 8th Senate. "His benevolence, wisdom, tolerance, accommodativeness, people-oriented as well as open door approach to leadership will forever endear him to Nigerians" Simon Peters, a resident of Sokoto affirmed.

He added that the Senate is not targeting Senator Adamu because he disagreed with the Senate's resolution on the sequence of elections.

"The rumours going round whether it is true or not, I do not know".

The lawmaker told journalists that when asked to account for the money, the former Governor of Nasarawa State said "monkeys raided his farm house and made away with the it".

The N70m handed over to the Northern Senators Forum has been swallowed by monkeys in the farm of a ranking senator.

Senator Dino Melaye who is the forum's PRO signed the said letter which attributed Adamu's removal to "financial mismanagement and misadministration".

Sani who stressed the necessity for Adamu to speak on the issue said "I support that it is very important that the distinguished senator who is a respected elder statesman should be around to protect and defend his integrity".

The amendment if signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari would see the National Assembly election coming up first in 2019, followed by state assemblies and governorship, with the presidential election coming last.

The removal is coming a week after Mr. Adamu led nine others to oppose the Senate passage of the amendment to the electoral act.
