Mr Dagogo said the North-West remained one of the few zones in the country that had not produced a Senate president since the country returned to democracy in 1999.

According to him, allowing the North-West to produce the 10th Senate president would strengthen APC’s political base and boost the people’s morale in the region.

Mr Dagogo also advocated that the House of Representatives speakership be zoned to the South-East while the South-South should retain the office of deputy Senate president.

He urged APC leadership to consider the South-East for the Senate majority leader, while the North-Central should produce the House majority leader.

Mr Dagogo noted that having produced the Senate president several times in the Fourth Republic, a speaker from the South-East will provide a soothing balm to members from the zone.
