Abuja - Although, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has adopted Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila as its candidates  for the posts of Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives respectively, the other candidates not adopted by party have vowed to contest the elections on the floor of the National Assembly on Tuesday, reports Punch.

The candidates are Yakubu Dogara (House of Representatives) and Bukola Saraki (Senate).

The two candidates have intensified their campaign for the positions by lobbing  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) incoming lawmakers.
