Pan-Igbo Group Roasts APC Over Zoning, Nomination Of 10th NASS Leadership

by Victor Ndubuisi

The South East Revival Group (SERG), a pan-Igbo sociopolitical organization, disapproved of the incoming executive’s meddling in the election of the 10th National Assembly’s elective leadership.

The SERG noted in a statement signed by its President and National Coordinator, Chief Willy Ezugwu, in response to the nomination of individuals as preferred lawmakers for various elective legislative offices in the incoming National Assembly: “The list released by the APC shows clearly that the party has learnt no lesson from its politics of exclusion since 2015.”

The APC NWC declared on Monday that Akpabio and Abass would run for speaker and president of the Senate, respectively.

The group urged opposition lawmakers and the “excluded North Central to work together with other aggrieved political blocs to elect leaders of the 10th National Assembly based on competence, justice, and equity.”


SERG declared: “The announcement of the zoning arrangement after so-called consultations and meetings held with the President-Elect, Bola Tinubu, and other stakeholders is an effort to impose a rubber stamp of national legislative leadership on the lawmakers.

“Micro-zoning the elective offices to individuals has tactically arm-twisted the members of the National Assembly and denied them the constitutionally guaranteed right to choose their leaders from among themselves.

“The party threw justice, equity and the rule of law to the wind by not only excluding the South East from the Senate Presidency but also gave zero allocation of elective slots to the North Central zone.

“We, therefore, call on the opposition parties and the excluded regions to form a formidable alliance and elect principal officers of the 10th National Assembly in the interest of good governance and the well-being of the masses.”
