Okeke, who contended that the Southeast region was alienated in the last four years; leading to a myriad of agitations, told Tinubu to avoid a repeat of such.
“In last four years, people from the Southeast were missing in the executive, as well as the leadership of the judiciary and legislature in Nigeria. No administration has ever been so lopsided.
“For the sake of equity, justice, fair play and in the spirit of a united Nigeria, the region – the Southeast, which has felt marginalized in the present APC government, should be pacified with the Senate presidency; and possibly with the speakership of the House of Representatives.
“No appointments at this period of the country’s history will be too big for a group that have sacrificed all for the unity of the country. The region should also be considered for the leadership of the Nigerian Police, Custom, Army, Immigration, and others.”
