He said he was confident because he had the support of his colleagues in the Senate and the leaders of the All Progressives Congress.

According to him, no party leader had asked him to withdraw for anyone,

APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, had explained that the party only recommended Senator Ahmad Lawan as the  preferred choice and had not imposed him on the senators.

Senator Ndume said, his fellow APC members have been supportive so far.

He promised to make the Office of the Senate President less attractive by reducing the unnecessary privileges attached to the office. He further said that, if voted into office he will make the performance of the ninth senate better.

Senator Ndume pledged to work harmoniously and inter-dependently with the executive without undermining the principle of separation of power.

The lawmaker said the North-East deserved an articulate representative as Senate President, adding that the region had suffered huge devastation with property worth over N2tn destroyed by insurgents.

Meanwhile, he reiterated that, if given the opportunity, he would not compromise the independence of the legislature.
