In a recent interview, Lemmy Ughebe, the Executive Director of the Make A Difference Initiative, commented on the zoning of Nigeria’s Senate President position.
Ughebe believes that Sen. Godswill Akpabio, with his overwhelming support, is on track for victory. He suggests that given the current Muslim-Muslim presidency, there is a need for a balancing act in the Senate Presidency.
He believes that Akpabio, who is not only competent but also a Christian, represents that balance. However, Ughebe acknowledges that Akpabio’s emergence as a senator has been contentious, and his moral burden will continue to be a point of contention.
He said, “Sen. Godswill Akpabio is coasting to victory with overwhelming support. With a Muslim-Muslim presidency, it is only natural to find a balancing act for the senate and Akpabio, aside from being competent, is also a Christian and represents that balance. However, the moral burden of the manner he emerged as a senator will continue to fill the groundswell with opinions.”
