A social political group unee the aegis of The Grassroots Frontiers ( TGF)  have called on the newly elected Senators to go out a whole hog in appointing only  leaders of immense credibility who are  politically adept and full of experience  to steer it’s sheep in the Ninth Assembly.

Rising from it’s emergency meeting in  Ibadan yesterday , the group , in a release signed by it’s Secretary, Comrade Akintunde Yussuf , unanimously endorsed the former Majority leader in the Sixth Assembly , Senator Teslim Folarin, who it describes as the Senate  treasure , as being the tailor made for the position of Deputy Senate President in the Ninth Assembly.

Comrade Akintunde , reading this group communique  said, ” the new crop of the elected Senators should distinguish themselves by closing doors on the external forces who are already making some clandestine  moves to appease the  conscience of some senators  and take away their freedom” . He added ” Any attempt by the NASS to kow tow to any influence from outside to impose leaders on it will paint  the Chambers in a bad tar because,  it is evolved to pursue public interest and not the interest of any individual or class”.

The TGF therefore advised that for the Ninth Assembly to reclaim it’s glory as the treasure base of the nation, it needs to put a square peg in a square hole  by choosing a tested and truly trusted  and sackless leader like Senator Teslim Folarin to be in the vanguard position as DSP,  for the red Chambers to realize an endless possibilities.

The TGF also  maintained that ” For the  9th Senate to truly once again experience being the Treasure Base of the Nation, it needs a man of granite   like Senator Teslim Folarin to take it  to an era of realizing it’s  full potentials”

“TKF has been tested and trusted once  as a Senate leader and he didn’t betray the trust and confidence reposed on him . He is a leader that can be trusted anytime, anyday”, the group stressed.
