The National President of Christians and Muslims Peace Advocacy and Enlightenment Initiative (CAMPAEI), Iwu Maurice Ogbu, has said that the choice of the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on zoning the speakership of the ninth House of Representatives needs political value and is inconsistent with the perfect of national joining.
He noticed that offering the situation toward the South West, previously possessing the workplace of the Vice President, is as per him an intentional ploy by the decision gathering to further underestimate the South East, focusing on that such an activity does not advance value, equity, harmony and national solidarity.
Ogbu futher contended that regardless of whether the South East gets the situation of the Deputy Senate President, it would not make up for the loss of the speakership of the House of Representatives.
Mr Ogbu expressed this while tending to newsmen in Owerri, the Imo state capital throughout the end of the week. His association, he stated, represents the harmony and solidarity of the nation, and is against the choice of the national initiative of the APC with respect to the House of Representatives speakership.
"We have six geopolitical zones and in the sharing of key political positions in the nation it is normal that all the geopolitical zones ought to be considered. What's more, this has been the training since the arrival of law based guideline in 1999, and it was just accomplished for national coordination by the previous decision party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and I believe that is the thing that the APC ought to do," Ogbu recommended.
He asked President Muhammadu Buhari to guarantee that the position is authoritatively zoned toward the South East for political consideration which, he stated, will change the wrong impression of the general population of the locale that the APC is one-sided towards the North and South West.
"I need to encourage president Buhari, who is the pioneer of the APC, to change the incorrect view of the general population of the South east that the APC is intended for the North and South West by guaranteeing that the situation of the Speakership is given toward the South East since they have positioning individuals who are individuals from the APC. Regardless of whether the South East at long last gets the Deputy Senate President position, it isn't on a similar platform with the Speaker, who is the number five man in political positioning in the nation."
