“The Igbos in the house will make it difficult for him but to balance the situation, an Igbo person and a Christian is better. A Muslim emerging the next senate president will lead to crisis, there will be so much rowdy session and disagreement in the house,’’ he said.
He also said the best candidate to become the next House of Representatives speaker is Ahmed Wase, the current deputy speaker.
‘’If the opposition parties put themselves together as expected, they will shake the speakership race but there will be division among them because money will separate them.
“Money will make them not come together to produce a good candidate. The proposed coalition among opposition parties in the House of Representatives will not work. The deputy speaker, Ahmed Idris Wase is the best candidate. He will stabilize the house,” he added.
