A northern socio-political organisation, under the aegis of the Northern Elders Forum, has warned against the imposition of the 10th Senate President, insisting that 109 senators-elect be allowed to choose their leaders.

The organisation noted that it had repeatedly cautioned the President Bola Tinubu-led administration to respect the rights and privileges of elected members of the National Assembly to choose their leaders.
