FORMER Senate leader, Senator Ali Ndume on Monday vowed not to drop his ambition of becoming the Senate President of the night Senate.

Senator Ndume met behind closed doors with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting started around 3.20pm when Ndume arrived at the Vice President’s office.

Ndume is one of the frontline aspirants for the position of Senate President for the 9th Senate in June.

He had declared his intention to run for the number three highest political office in the land despite the endorsement of the current Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the same position.

After the closed meeting, Senator Ndume declined to talk to State House correspondents that waited to know the agenda and outcome of the meeting with the Vice President.

He said that he was still consulting and should not make any comments on the meeting.

When asked whether he would succumb to pressure by his party to step down for the party’s candidate, Senator Ahmad Lawan, he rhetorically asked, “Me, step down? I am still consulting.”

Also reminded that he was said to be opposition bride, he also replied, “Me that is regarded as an enemy by the opposition?”
