Ahmed Lawan, senate majority leader, says he had no choice, but to accept his new position because it was his party’s decision.

Lawan became senate leader after the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus at the upper legislative chamber removed Ali Ndume.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Lawan promised to make sure that bills and communication from the executive are marketable.

“That is the position of the leader of the party in the country, the president insisted that party supremacy must be upheld at all times,” he said.

Lawan said the development would help create and sustain good relationship, and unify the APC caucus.

“This is the position of all the senators in the APC caucus,” he said.

“My selection is to reconcile our differences, to unite and give this chamber a peaceful chance to support the good and laudable policies of our government.

“It is a position that is supposed to unite the senate in terms of the multi party nature of the national assembly for us to work together.’’

He added that he would ensure that “the senate developed a system whereby executive communication, especially bills, were good products that would be easily digested.”
