Ignoring South-East In 10th NASS Leadership Risky For APC – Hon. Ben Kalu

Ben Kalu, the choice of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the post of the Deputy Speaker in the yet-to-be-inaugurated 10th National Assembly has justified the party’s decision to cede the position to the South-East geopolitical zone.

 

The lawmaker representing Bende Federal Constituency in Abia State is of the opinion that the APC should include the South-East in the scheme of things now in order not to get another poor turnout of votes from the zone in 2027.

 

In the recent zoning arrangement announced by the APC for the leadership of the 10th National Assembly, Senator Godswill Akpabio from the South-South was picked for Senate President and Senator Barau Jibrin from the North-West was picked for the Deputy Senate President.

For the House of Representatives, the party picked Honourable Tajudeen Abbas from the North-West for the Speakership position to be deputized by Honourable Kalu from the South-East.

 

However, the APC zoning arrangement has not gone down well with many lawmakers, especially those from the North-Central who feel the zone has been ignored in the whole arrangement.
