The South East has been told it has no right to seek the position of senate president because they did not vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Musa Saidu, a chieftain of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) said this during an interview.
He stated that the South-East region of the country can’t be talking about fairness and justice when they didn’t vote for the APC during the 2023 general election.
“I want to say without fear of contradiction that the south-east has no justification to start asking for the senate presidency of the 10th national assembly because it is not part of those who voted for the APC.
“The south-east can’t be in contention for the senate presidency because its people didn’t vote for the APC. You are talking about fairness and justice, when you didn’t even vote for the APC during the 2023 general election.
“Other zones voted massively for the party and the president-elect, Sen. Bola Tinubu, while you decided to give your votes entirely to the Labour Party.
“How can you come out to say that the president-elect should zone the senate presidency to the south-east, when you didn’t vote for him?
“Supposing he didn’t win the election, would he be in the position to zone the senate presidency?
“I think that the zoning of the senate presidency to south-south is not entirely a bad idea because the zone performed better in terms of voting for the APC in the last election.”
