10th NASS Leadership: Arewa Professionals Back South East Senate Presidency, North West Speakership Bids
A group under the aegis of Arewa Young Professionals in Politics (AYPP) has averred that for political inclusion in Nigeria, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) should consider the South East for Senate President and North West for the Speaker of the 10th National Assembly (NASS).
Addressing a press conference in Kaduna, the group noted that the recent general election saw the APC emerge victorious at the Presidential and National Assembly level.
According to the convener, Malam Yusuf Idris Amoke, “Now, as we move to the next phase of politicking which involves determining the leadership of the red and green chambers of the National Assembly, it is important that we ensure power is distributed fairly across the nation. This will foster a sense of belonging for every region and religion, and prevent any divisive tension that could undermine the government’s effectiveness.
“As the Arewa Young Professionals in Politics, we are urging the APC leadership and the President-elect to carefully consider the need for political inclusion in the power equation.
“Specifically, we call on them to zone the Senate Presidency to the South East for greater political inclusion and equally zone the Speakership to the North West as compensation for their significant role in the emergence of the government”.
The group also called on the party to ensure that the leadership of the National Assembly projects Nigeria’s religious diversity for national cohesion.
