The campaign organisation of Ahmad Lawan says 60 senators-elect of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are backing its candidate for the office of senate president.
Jibrin Barau, senator representing Kano north and secretary of the campaign organisation, disclosed this at press conference on Saturday, during which a list of the senators-elect was read out.
Barau said the endorsement of Ifeanyi Uba, a senator-elect of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), brings the total number of those who have signed the endorsement register of Lawan to 61.
Only four senators of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have so far endorsed the candidacy of Lawan.
