He recently made this known while emphasizing that a Christian from the South East region should be selected so as to balance the Muslim Muslim ticket adopted by the political party

Isiguzoro said: " Any attempt to give Senate Presidency back to the North would sink the country. What we must do at this moment is a process of national healing which is the integration of the Southeast since the region has accepted APC for the first time. What we are saying is that the President-elect should do his homework very well. If he does not do it, he might end up shooting himself in the foot. He should not pick someone that would impeach him or would be an opposition to his policies. However, the Senate must amend the rule based on the necessity to allow a first - timer to become the president. If Akpabio can become a Minority Leader during his first term in the Senate then the Southeast should be given a free hand".
