As the race for the Senate presidency hots up, Senator Ali Ndume, has said that he has not bowed out of the contest.
Ndume spoke to State House correspondents yesterday after a meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the presidential villa in Abuja.
The lawmaker is forging ahead with his ambition to become the next Senate president even when the leadership of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has anointed Senator Ahmed Lawan for the office.
At the end of the one-hour meeting with Osinbajo, when asked if he had withdrawn from the race, Ndume retorted: “Me! I am still consulting.”
On his visit to Osinbajo, the senator said that “this is not the time to talk because I am still holding consultations.”
