An Ondo governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a serving senator representing Ondo north senatorial district, Ajayi Boroface, has said that issues around the disputed emergence of the national leadership of the Senate had left its members polarized.

Borofice who said he belongs to the Unity Forum faction, vowed that they will pursue the case against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu-led leadership of the red chamber until integrity is restored.

He further said that they are challenging the current senate leadership based on principle and not because they hate anybody.

“So, it is not that we are all working in the same direction; some of us are speaking out and I hope that you press men will give expression to our voices when we speak out. So, I can assure you that we will not be intimidated, We will continue to fight to ensure that the image of the senate is redeemed so that any senator in Nigeria can raise his head anywhere in the world and described himself as senator,” he said.
