The leaders from APC North-East have demanded that the Senate Presidency or Speaker of the House of Reps be allotted to the zone in recognition of their contribution to the party's victory at last weekend's presidential poll.
The North-East chapter of the APC said they had enough qualified candidates for the positions if given the opportunity to produce either of the 2 major political positions.
The All Progressives Congress National Vice Chairman, North-East, Mr. Babachir Lawal, who made the demand in in Abuja today, also urged voters in the region to massively vote for the Party at the governorship and state House of Assembly election that will be held next Saturday.
He said,"In recognition of this immense contribution to the party's victory, I want to seize this opportunity to call on the APC National Leadership to cede either the Senate Presidency or Speaker of the House of Representatives to the region.
"We have an abundance of talents and eminently qualified candidates for these positions and this will set the region on a course of accelerated development that it so desperately needs."
Lawal added, "For us to reap the full benefits of an APC government at the centre, we must also have APC in government in the six states in our zone."
