THE Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has described as a charade the decision of the leadership of All Progressives Congress, APC, to zone the position of deputy speaker in the 10th national assembly to the South East, saying it is an insult to the Igbo.
President of the group, Comrade Goodluck Ibem and publicity secretary, Comrade Okey Nwaoru said the people of the South East would not accept the zoning arrangement by the ruling party.
Their statement read: “This charade by the APC is an insult to the political sensibility of Ndigbo and we reject it in its entirety, no matter those behind it.
The circumstances surrounding the emergence of Benjamin Kalu, who the party has micro zoned the office of deputy speaker to, following the February 25 presidential and national assembly elections, are still mired in a lot of controversy.
