But, Oyegun on Wednesday while addressing journalists in Abuja said under no circumstance will the ruling party concede the leadership of the Senate.
The ruling party boss said the issue of which party to produce the Senate President should not even arise in the first place.
He said the issue of losing the number three citizen’s job does not arise as APC is still the majority party in the Senate.
