10th Assembly: Umahi best candidate for Senate President- Ohanaeze


Apex Igbo Socio-cultural Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has made a strong case for Ebonyi state Governor Engr David Umahi for the senate president seat, saying he stands out best among other contestants.

Ohanaeze, said Umahi senator-Elect for Ebonyi south zone under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), assessed the possibilities for a south-easterner to emerge as the President of the Senate in the 10th Assembly.

In a statement by the Secretary-general, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro stated that Ndigbo has resolved that the southeast zone gets the position and there should be collaboration from other zones.

“The coast is clearer now and there should be collaborative measures to ensure that the South-east gets the position of the President of the Senate in the 10th Assembly.

“Ndigbo will continue to prevail upon our distinguished Senators to put forward our collective survival as a nation and other national considerations above all personal or primordial presumptions, and allow the right things to be carried out so that there will be healing in the land and uniting the country.

“Ndigbo unanimously urges other contestants from the south-east and other geopolitical zones to allow the political leader of the south-east and the chairman of the Southeast Governors’ Forum, Engr David Umahi to enjoy all the privileges of amending the Senate standing rules and doctrine of necessity for him to emerge as the President of the Senate of 10th Assembly.

According to the statement, Senators Elect- will ponder in their wisdom and understanding and allow Governor Umahi whose unassuming disposition and track record of accomplishments assist the APC leadership and President-Elect, Senator Bola Tinubu to curb the activities of Biafra agitators and other secessionist commanders.

Nothing that Governor Umahi is the best candidate for the position of Senate President and in the interest of the President-Elect and APC, there should be a concession given to the southeast for the interest of the country.

The body urged Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and Senator Osita Izunaso to drop their ambitions and rally support for Governor David Umahi as actions are in top gear to bring other senators from other zones especially the North to support him for National peace and Unity.
