“What the Senate needs in the present dispensation is the leadership of a person of Saraki’s caliber. He has the charisma, experience and integrity and strong character to lead the senate” he said.
He urged members of the 8th Senate to work together with Saraki irrespective of personal interest.
“Senators should jettison their personal, party or group interest for the interest of the nation because without Nigeria, all the divergent interest would not be there,” said Ogba.
He advised Saraki to see his position as that of trust by not only the senators but well-meaning Nigerians and endeavor to give the nation “nothing less than the best.”
“We in NDYC wish Saraki and Dogara God’s wisdom and protection to lead the nation to the highly desired next level,” concluded Ogba.
Divisions have beset the All Progressives after Saraki and Dogara had last month defied the directive of the party by contesting and winning the Senate Presidency and Speakership respectively against the wish of the party which preferred Ahmed Lawan as Senate President and Femi Gbajabiamila as Speaker.
