Senator Osita Izunaso Makes Case for Senate Presidency, Urges APC Colleagues for Support

…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media. Senator Osita Izunaso, an aspirant for the Office of the Senate President of the 10th National Assembly, has put forth his reasons why his colleagues should support him for the nation’s third-highest position.


In a statement released by his Media Office, Senator Izunaso emphasized that he is the most suitable candidate for the role and that it is time for his ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to show their appreciation.

Senator Izunaso made these remarks shortly after attending the Interdenominational service held at the Ecumenical Centre in Abuja.

He emphasized that in the interest of justice, fairness, and equity, the new President of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the leadership of the ruling party should consider his years of service and sacrifice to the party when deciding whom to support for the position of Senate President.

Having been a former member of the APC National Working Committee (NWC), Senator Izunaso mentioned that he had dedicated his time, energy, and resources, alongside prominent figures like Chief Bisi Akande and the current Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, to build the party from its inception.

He served as the National Organizing Secretary for five years without any negative incidents.

Therefore, he argued that it would be unfair and unjust for the party’s leadership to deny him the opportunity to become the Senate President.


Senator Izunaso highlighted his extensive involvement in the formation and growth of the APC.

He recalled the initial stages of the party’s establishment, where he and other party members would travel to Lagos every weekend for six months, working to finalize the party’s name, logo, and registration with the Corporate Affairs Commission.

He also pointed out that there were no litigations during the party’s 36 governorship primaries, emphasizing their commitment to doing things right.

Senator Izunaso believed that his track record of leading the party through challenging times and his experience of contesting and winning elections made him highly qualified for the position of Senate President.

Refuting claims that the Southeast did not contribute enough votes to warrant holding the nation’s No 3 position, Senator Izunaso commended every APC candidate from the Southeast geopolitical zone who emerged victorious in the 2023 elections.

He acknowledged the difficulties faced by the party in the region, particularly due to a prominent Presidential candidate who enjoyed substantial support from voters.

Senator Izunaso reiterated that their victory was hard-fought, emphasizing the challenges they overcame.

Lastly, Senator Izunaso emphasized his qualifications and experience.

He mentioned his election to the House of Representatives in 2003 and his subsequent election to the Senate in 2007.

Prior to that, he had served as a staff member in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
