Former Commissioner for Information in Edo State, Prince Kassim Afegbua has said that it is the tune of the South South geopolitical zone to produce the president of the Senate in the 10th Nation­al Assembly.

In a press statement he personally signed and made available to the media on Tues­day, Afegbua noted that the South-South geopolitical zone deserved the position of the Senate Presidency in the 10th Assembly for various reasons.

“One, it will be a way of ac­knowledging the support of the zone towards the Tinubu presidency; the zone did not only contribute enormous votes that helped the APC candidate defeat other can­didates, it actually surpassed the 25% threshold in the en­tire six states of the South- South geopolitical zone.

“It is natural in the spirit of fairness, equity and justice to cede the position to the zone that is a treasure base of the country. Also, it is a way to promote political inclusion, constructive engagement and collective bargaining in the process of deepening de­mocracy in Nigeria,” he said.

Speaking further, Afegbua noted that the neighboring South East has had the chance to produce Senate presidents in the past, saying it should look elsewhere.

“The South-East zone has had the opportunity to pro­duce five Senate Presidents in the last twenty four years of this democracy: Senators Enwerem, Okadigbo, Wabara, Anyim and Nnamani. They all at different times held that exalted office in the present democratic dispensation. The South-East geopolitical zone should look elsewhere to seek other positions and not that of Senate Presidency.”
