Senator Representing Borno south senatorial district, Ali Ndume, who is also running for Senate Presidency under the All Progressive Congress, APC, has released his seven point agenda.
As you may know, the All Progressive Congress itself has endorsed Senator Ahmad Lawan for the position, but notwithstanding, Ali Ndume who is a onetime senate leader rejected the decision by the All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership, saying the move was not in line with the constitution and vowed to continue with his campaign.
The senator who has been in the national assembly since 2003 released his seven point agenda as follows:
- To “work harmoniously and inter-dependently with the Executive without undermining the principle of separation of power.”
- To prioritize and ensure the passage of the Constituency Development Bill to make “constituency projects more transparent, accountable, efficient and effective.”
- To cooperate and synergise with other senators-elect with a view agreeing on timeline for confirmation, passage of bills especially the annual budgets which he said will not exceed 90 days from the day of submission.

- “To make laws that will block leakages and devise improved means of generating revenue, especially through the amendment and review of our tax laws which will help to reduce reliance on local and foreign loans to finance budget.”
- “To run the 9th Senate transparently through open accountability with full participation of all senators.”
- To uphold his party’s principles and policies, Ndume said the Senate under his presidency will make laws and review existing ones “to be in tandem with APC’s next level agenda for Nigeria.”
If you were a senator, would you be convinced to vote Ndume on these points ?
