A formal letter has been written to National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu by the coalition of APC Support Groups on Wednesday.
The letter urged the ruling party to zone the Senate president’s office to South-East in the spirit of fairness.
In the letter signed by the CASG National Secretary, Mazi Peter Okoroafor, and made available to The PUNCH, the coalition expressed optimism that allocating the prestigious office to the region ahead of the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly would douse agitation and unrest among their people.

The coalition’s plea comes barely three days after the National Vice Chairman of the APC (North-West), Malam Salihu Lukman, called on northern senators contesting the post to step down to balance the Muslim-Muslim ticket approach of the party.
According to him, it would be insensitive to have a Muslim Senate president after producing a president and his deputy, who share a similar faith.
