A coalition of Southern and Northern Organisations for Peace, on Thursday, urged All Progressives Congress (APC) to zone the position of Senate President to the South-East zone in the interest of equity, fairness and peace.
The group stated this in a statement issued by its Secretary, Mr Chukwuemeka Uzoka, after the National Peace Walk, organised for the President-elect, Sen. Bola Tinubu, in Abuja.
Uzoka, in the statement, said the Convener of Northern Leaders group, Dr Ahmed Ahmed, spoke on the need for the in-coming administration to zone the position to the South-East to give a sense of inclusion to the Nigerian project.
Ahmed said that the group from Abuja Fountain Garden walked through Wuse 2 to the APC secretariat in Abuja.
He stated that the group handed over the “Peace Note” to the National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, on the need for equity, fairness and peace as a way of consolidating the nation’s democratic process.
Also, the Co-convener of the Peace Walk and Secretary of the coalition, Mr Uzoka Chukwuemeka, stated that zoning the senate president position to the South-East would kill all allegations of exclusion by the zone.
President of Unemployed Youths Association of Nigeria, Mr Ebi Zuofa, said that a new Nigeria was possible if the in-coming administration could sincerely look into all the challenges of unemployment and address them squarely.
Zuofa urged the in-coming leaders to have sincerity of purpose through which the nation’s glory could emerge.
