Bringing the Senate President to the Southeast would send a strong message that the region is an important part of Nigeria and that its people deserve to have a voice in government.
“Secondly, the Southeast is home to some of Nigeria’s most pressing issues. From the ongoing conflict in the region to the need for infrastructure development, there are many challenges that must be addressed. By bringing the Senate President to the Southeast, these issues can be brought to the forefront of the national agenda.
“Distinguish senator Dr Orji Uzor Kalu stands to be the best man for the job. Senator Orji is a seasoned politician with a proven track record of leadership. He has served in various political positions and has always put the interests of Nigerians first. He is a unifying figure who can bridge the gap between the different regions of Nigeria and work towards a more united country.

He has lived in the region for most of his life and has firsthand knowledge of the challenges that its people face. He has already demonstrated a commitment to improving the region through his various works and policies.
“In conclusion, the Senate President should come to the Southeast of Nigeria to address the region’s unique challenges and to send a message that the Southeast is an important part of Nigeria. Distinguished senator Dr Orji Uzor Kalu stands to be the best man for the job due to his experience, his leadership skills, and his commitment to improving the lives of Nigerians.
