President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, on Monday, joined the 2023 presidential election race on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
Lawan has also obtained the nomination and expression of interest forms in Abuja as sales are expected to close on Tuesday.
According to The PUNCH, some political associates of the Senate President were at the ICC to obtain forms saying Nigeria needs a “Nigerian president” and not one given to ethnic tendencies.
The leader of the group, Sam Nkire, was quoted as saying, “We are not here on our own, we have his backing.
“Even though friends and brothers contributed to purchase this form for him but he has given us the go-ahead.”
However, the Senate President has since been pictured holding the APC nomination and expression of interest forms.
