Francis Fadahunsi, the Senator-elect for the Osun East Senatorial District, has warned that the way the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, is going about the election of Senator Ahmed Lawan as Senate President for the 9th Assembly could present him as a stooge of the executive.
According to him, Oshiomhole gives instructions and directives to senators-elected under APC like a head teacher giving instructions to his pupils.
He further questioned the business of the executive with the election of principal officers of the National Assembly.
“What is the business of the executive with the election of principal officers of the National Assembly? The way the party is going about it is exposing Senator Lawan. The action of the National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole, is like that of a headmaster giving instructions to his pupils,” he said in a statement through his aide, Sam Segun-Progress.
“The APC ought to be discreet with its lobbying, not grandstanding about imposing an anointed candidate on senators. This is because the party is exposing Senator Lawan to the danger of being viewed and labelled as a stooge of the executive,” he added.
