As the formation for the 9th Senate begins to take shape, calls are increasing for the South-East to produce the next Senate president.

A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia, Mr Austin Meregini, a.ka “Ugolee”, opines that it will be bad if the south-easterners are denied the position of Senate President in the 9th National Assembly. Meregini, also contested during the March 9 house of assembly elections as the APC Candidate for Umuahia East Constituency seat in the Abia State.

He made the assertion while speaking with  Newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos. Meregini listed Chief Orju Uzor Kalu as the most qualified candidate to fill the position. Although accepting the fact that Kalu is a first time senator, he believes that Kalu having served in the house of representatives and as governor has the required qualities to lead the ninth Senate.

Meregini also believes that ceeding the senate president seat to the South-East will douse tension of marginalisation.
