Osiede, said his group met with some senators-elect and a member of the House of Representatives members-elect who are seeking to contest as Speaker in the 10th Assembly..

He said Izunaso, during the engagement with him, stressed the need to give all parts of the country a sense of belonging.

The Senator said the diversity of the Nigerian nation was such that a lot of consideration ought to be given to various factors in the process of determining who gets what in the allocation of government offices.

He argued that experience, capacity, competence and other considerations such as ethnic and religious balancing must be factored into the leadership selection process at the next National Assembly.

He also said he was presenting himself to his colleagues at the Senate as a loyal party man, lawyer, erstwhile journalist and former member of the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for support to become the next President of the 10th Senate.

Also speaking on his ambition on the occasion, Senator Barau Jibrin, maintained that the legislature remained a special institution.

He said experience, exposure, capacity and an ability to navigate through the different ideas, competences and characters of various individuals that constitute its membership, were important in trying to determine who leads such an institution.

Jibrin said, “I will gladly accept the position of his party if at end of the campaigns and efforts to win the Senate Presidency, it is zoned to another region.”

Nwoko, a senator-elect from Delta State, said it was important to state in no ambiguous terms where the position of President of the Senate ought to go in the 10th Senate.
