According to Daily Post, the senators, led by the deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, said the South East region has been shortchanged by the Federal Government.

The Chairman of the South East Senate Caucus, Eyinnaya Abaribe, speaking to the press after the meeting in the Presidential Villa in the State house said:

This is the southeast caucus in the Senate and we came to see the president because of the issues we have in the southeast.

We had a fruitful discussion with the President. He has promised us that he is going to look into the problems of southeast.

We know that there are problems everywhere but we also believe that the South East is the zone that is far much shortchanged at this time than other zones.


We also talked about the issue of appointments from the South East, especially with respect to the National Security Council. The President also told us that governors of the South East have also engaged him in the same problems we engaged him in.

We are reassured with the response we got from the President and we look forward to further interaction with him in this manner.

Ekweremadu, who also spoke to the press, said issues on infrastructure in the South-East, including roads, railway and airports were discussed.

He added that security and IPOB were also discussed, and the President promised to look into the matter. He said:

For us from the South East, we believe that dialogue is better than any other form of engagement.

So, we decided to visit the President and present to him some of the concerns of the South East including the issues of roads, general infrastructure; the rail, airports and others.

We also discussed the issue of security with him and of course the issue of IPOB. We had a good conversation and he promised to look into the issues.
