An elected member of the Nigerian HOR from the North West, Hon. Bashir Gorau, has described his zone as the shock absorber of Nigeria's politics. In his interview on AIT News, the Nigerian politician explained why he described his zone as such while stating that he would not mind saying that the Senate presidency should move to the North West.
Addressing the topic, Hon. Bashir said, "As far as my zone is concerned, I can be so selfish as to say that even the Senate Presidency should move to the North West as it is the shock absorber of Nigerian politics. Of course, we are the shock absorbers of Nigerian politics because whoever the seven states of the North West support will emerge as the country's president.
He added, "This is because of our population. I think they are deliberating and working towards an informal consensus for the next Senate president to emerge with time.
