The Senator representing the Niger-East Senatorial District, Mohammed Musa Sani has revealed what would make him shelve his ambition for Senate President.
According to Sani, he would only drop out of the race if a competent personality like him in the Senate pleaded with him for the position.
The lawmaker revealed this on Monday during an interview on Arise TV.
Speaking on the Muslim-Muslim ticket in the country, he said he believes in the circularity of one Nigeria.
Sani said, “For the exigencies of our time, looking at the volatile situation of what has generated the Muslim-Muslim ticket in this country, I am one person that believes in the circularity of one Nigeria. I am one person that believes that, for every reason, there should be given and take in this country. We have lived with both Christians and Muslims. Some of us still have relatives that are still Christians and Muslims. We have lived in a society where there’s intermarriage; we have lived for so long.
“Our forefathers envisaged a country where we would all live together.
”I will not have any problem seeing a qualified, competent personality like me in the Senate who has also presented himself for the office of the Senate President and asked me please to drop my ambition for him; I will do it. There’s a position of Deputy Senate President, which also is a presiding officer in the National Assembly. I will be willing to do it if it’s going to be in the best interest of Nigerians; it’s going to be in the best interest of the zone I am going to represent. There’s no commitment or sacrifice too much to make to keep the unity this country deserves.”
