The All Progressive Congress, APC, National Working Committee, NWC, at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari, appears to have finally adopted the Principal officers of the Senate and the House of Representatives without any position being allocated for the south east geo-political region, comprising of Abia, Anambra, Eboyi, Enugu and Imo states.

Orji Uzor Kalu, a former governor of Abia state who had championed President Muhammadu Buhari re-election bid by moving from state to state and reaching out to prominent Nigerians including Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, a retired Army General and former Head of State at his Hill top mansion, Minna, Niger state , to drum their support for him, had expected that the Katsina state born Nigerian President will support him to contest for the Deputy Senate President to represent the interest of the south east. He got it wrong.

Unknown to him the party NWC and the Presidency, have shared the principal offices of the National Assembly without any position being reserved for the south east. The position of the Senate President was allocated to the north east and Ahmad Lawan, a ranking Senator from Borno state was adopted by the Committee at in the instance of the President to be the party Candidate to contest for the position on the floor of the Senate.

We don't care who becomes the Senate President or HOS

Buhari and his useless party can shove it up their old disgusting ass.

For the records , The north still remain the poorest region in Nigeria despite holding on to power for many years.
