Senator Ahmed Lawan on Wednesday refused to be part of the delegation constituted by Senate President Bukola Saraki to visit Adamawa State.
The 8-man Senate committee with the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu as leader and Lawan as a member, was constituted by Saraki on Tuesday to meet victims of the Boko Haram insurgency in Adamawa State.
Other members of the committee are Binta Masi Garba, Abubakar Ahmadu, Abdul-Aziz Murtala Nyako, Bala Ibn Na’Allah, Bashir Marafa and George Sekibo.
Lawan, who contested the Senate Presidency with Saraki, refused to accompany the committee on the trip on Wednesday.
While other members of the delegation led by Senator Ekweremadu left for Adamawa State, Lawan stayed back at the chamber.
Since the resumption of the Senate from recess, Lawan, a third term senator has been keeping mum.
Lawan was the preferred candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Senate President’s seat.
