From Ibraheem Hamza Muhammad
Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, the Senator representating Southern Nasarawa senatorial district in the National Assembly, has submitted his nomination and expression of interest forms to All Progressives Congress, ( APC) National Secretariat.
The Senator who was represented by his brother, Alhaji Ali Al-Makura amongst others, submitted the form for the second bid for the Senate post to the National Organizing Secretary, Alhaji Hussaini Argungun in Abuja.
Sourthern Nasarawa senatorial district consists of five local governments of Lafia, Doma, Awe, Keana and Obi Local Governments in Nasarawa state.
Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura was elected as executive Governor of Nasarawa State between 2011 and re-elected in 2015.
At the end of his tenure as Governor in 2019, he was elected Senator.
Senator Al-Makura was poised to win the election for the position of APC National Chairman when he was told by President Muhammadu Buhari to step down for a consensus candidate, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
From all indication, he is the only APC aspirant that has paid and submitted his form from the senatorial district.
