BREAKING: Senate President, Lawan Joins Presidential Race As Group Picks APC N100million Nomination Form For Him

The speculation over the presidential ambition of Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, was laid to rest on Monday when a group of committee of friends picked the expression of interest and nomination forms for him.
He becomes the 24th aspirant to pick the party’s expression of interest and nomination forms for the May 30 primary.

A group of his friends led by Chief Sam Nkire, a member of the National Caucus of the party and 15 other Senators, purchased the form for him at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
Lawan has been at the National Assembly since 1999, serving two terms in the House of Representatives before moving to the Senate in 2007.
He made a failed bid to be Senate President in 2015 when Bukola Saraki won the seat despite the APC, the new ruling party at the time with a sizeable majority in the Chamber, nominating Lawan for the position.
Last year, posters of Lawan had appeared in Damaturu, the capital of his home Yobe State, and some other northern cities.
