The Arewa Journalists’ Forum (AJF) has endorsed Senator-elect, Dave Umahi for the position of President of the 10th National Assembly.

The group hailed Umahi’s vision for a united Nigeria, saying that it was in line with the aspirations of the forum.

“We have carefully observed the leadership qualities of Senator Dave Umahi and we are convinced that he is the right candidate for the position of President of the 10th National Assembly.
