See who Kola Abiola tipped to be next Senate President

Kola Abiola, a candidate in the recently concluded February 25 presidential election, has said the next senate president should be zoned to the South East

The son of the popular democracy hero, MKO Abiola, tipped Orji Kalu, the senator representing Abia North, to succeed Ahmed Lawan, the current senate president

The former presidential candidate said it would be fair and just if the value of equity is shared with the people of the southeast who already feel marginalised in the Nigeria politics

He said the 10th senate presidency should be zoned to the southeast.

According to Abiola, Nigerians from the southeast region are already feeling shortchanged, adding that their grievances are cleared in the just concluded election.

Abiola further stated that the reactions from the region to the results of the presidential election that produced Bola Tinubu as the president-elect is a clear testament to their anger.

He added that the people's perceived marginalisation requires serious attention at the national level as a significant discourse in Nigeria's political arena.

Commending the political sagacity of the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, the support enjoyed from the north because of Kashim Shettima, the vice president-elect, Abiola said it would only be fair and just to zone the 10th senate presidency to the southeast.

While stating that the value of equity must be extended to the southeast people, he said:

“Zoning the Senate President to South East is the right thing to do."

Abiola, who contested against Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election, was one of the presidential candidates that have congratulated the president-elect while conceding the defeat.
