North Central geopolitical zone where the seat is allegedly zoned to. However, latest information has it that neither Senator Akume nor Senator Saraki will perhaps get the Senate Presidency as the leaders of APC have decided to zone it to North east based on the happenings in the Senate. As you read this piece, the incumbent Senate President, David Mark who we learnt is not in good terms with Senator Akume is doing everything within his power to ensure Sen. Akume does not in any way get near to the seat and he is plotting to make sure his interest count on whoever attains the House leadership. Even though his party, PDP is not in position to produce who succeeds him, through other PDP senators and some APC senators, senator Mark is making behind the scene move to influence who becomes next Senate President. Meanwhile, in a bid to counter his move, APC National leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who was said to be favourable disposed to senator Akume emerging senate president has reportedly changed his mind. Tinubu is said to be looking towards Northeast to produce the next senate president and he is said to be considering Senator Ahmed Lawan who is said to be one of those Senator David Mark is considering for the seat. Senator Ahmed is from Northeast geopolitical zone. APC leadership, especially Tinubu is said to be guiding against a repeat of what transpired in the lower chamber in the current 7th Assembly where the then ACN lawmakers and some aggrieved PDP lawmakers voted against PDP zoning strategy to give way to the emergence of Hon. Aminu Tambuwal as against Hon. Mulikat Adeola originally penciled down by PDP leadership for House speakership position. Tinubu was said to have talked with Senator Akume to let go of the position and he would be given the majority leader.
