A group identified as North West Alliance for Danjuma Goje has emerged as the race for Senate presidency in the incoming ninth National Assembly continues to get interesting on a daily basis.
The group, an amalgamation of various youth associations in northwest, said it chose to stand by Senator Goje because of his sterling qualities, Leadership reports.
Legit.ng notes that the chairman of the group, Comrade Jamilu Ibrahim Maikarofi, said: “As the 9th assembly is about to be inaugurated, we want to voice out our choice for the job of the Senate president, who is no other than the amiable Sen Muhammad Danjuma Goje.
“It will be a great disservice to the nation if we keep mute while the wrong person is about to be foisted on the nation by some vested interests, which have recently showed their aversion to the core values of governance that President Muhammadu Buhari stood for in their absence to welcome him in Lagos recently.
“We choose to stand by Senator Goje because of his sterling qualities which he has exhibited in all the state and national assignments handed over to him. For one, his numerous achievements in steering the affairs of Gombe state are too numerous and well known to many, which we believe will be replicated once he emerged as Senate president.”
“Also, as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, we believe he has garnered enough experience to steer the affairs of the next Senate in the right direction for the overall general development of our great country.
“The North West Alliance for Danjuma Goje is ready to mobilise the teeming youths of this geopolitical entity to storm Abuja in their thousands to solicit for the election of Danjuma Goje as the next Senate President.
“We believe his election will usher in a more experienced hand at the helm of affairs of the Senate and the nation will never regret his election as the president of the senate. We are therefore against any attempt by the ruling party to foist somebody who we believe is incomparable to Senator Goje in terms of political sagacity, experience and intellectual capacity.”
