The senator-elect for Imo North, Engr Patrick C. Ndubueze, has joined the race for the senate presidency of the 10th National Assembly billed to be inaugurated in June, this year.

Ndubueze made his intention known in a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, and all senators-elect, a copy of which was made available to newsmen on Sunday.

Ndubueze represented Okigwe Federal Constituency of Imo State in the National Assembly in 1992.

The letter reads in part: “Now, in respect of current realities in this time which requires sensitive leadership in the senate in the mould of a focused leadership, a leadership that is people-centric and a calm and supportive leadership.

“Having been persuaded of my track record as a ranking legislator, a politician of more than 35 years standing and a personal character that has stood the test of time for integrity and commitment to the people, I, Engr Patrick Ndubueze, being a ranking member of the National Assembly, do desire to offer myself to contest the office of the senate president of the 10th National Assembly strongly believing in my capacity to stand in the role of the leadership required at this time.”
