Chambalen Adiaso and Comrade Maxwell Okoye in Abuja, the group also congratulated President Buhari on his recent victory at the polls even as they urged him to use the victory in consolidating on the socio-economic progress commenced in his first term.

“Nigeria is a great country with six geopolitical zones and in the interest of equity and equal representation, it demand as a right that the position of Senate Majority Leader be ceded to the South East.

“We have consulted widely with all critical stakeholders from within and outside the South East zone, and there are overwhelming support for Senator Anayo Rochas Okorocha to immediately declare his interest to occupy the position of the Majority Leader of the 9th Senate.

“Senator Anayo Rochas Okorocha was the sole financier of all the activities of the South East Presidential Support Committee as well as the number one financier (living or dead) of the All Progressives Congress inn he South East. Senator Okorocha was the only APC governor in the south East, and a founding member of the APC merger.

“As a result, we call on the APC to rekindle the spirit of reward and rally round Distinguished Senator Rochas Okorocha in this journey to reintegrate the people of the South East into the mainstream politics of the APC”.
