Senator Ali Ndume representing Borno-South has accepted his nomination for the Senate President which was moved by Adamawa-North Senator-elect, Ishaku Abbo of the Peoples Democratic Party and seconded by Rivers South-East senator-elect Barinada Mpigi.

While accepting his nomination, Ndume urged his colleagues to vote according to their conscience.

Ndume, who noted that his decision to run was a tough one, said there was a need for the Senate to be inter-dependent from the executive arm of government.

He said there was a need to make a legal framework for constituency project which usually causes controversy.

The lawmaker-elect said as Senate President, he would ensure the swift passage of the budget and help President Muhammadu Buhari to achieve his agenda for the good of Nigerians.
