The senator representing borno north in the senate ali ndume has raised the alarm on senators lobying for the post of the senate president by buying votes from other colleague senators.
Ndume raise the alarm during an interview with BBC hausa.
Ndume said lawmakers have started using money to get support at the expense of competence.
He said, “In the past it was said that the vote of the poor is being bought, now it has reached that even the senator’s vote is wanted to be bought.
“There are senators aspiring for the Senate President who give money to senators.”
He said senators that don’t have the knowledge of legislative proceedings are eyeing the position with money.
“If I am rich and can share money as was being done presently to get positions in the Senate, with my experience, I tell you I would have become the President of the Senate. There is nothing like considering competence, everything was monetised,” he added.
