Northern Youths Assembly for Good Governance Endorses Senator Orji Uzor Kalu for Senate President
Abuja, Nigeria – The Northern Youths Assembly for Good Governance has thrown its weight behind former Abia State governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, as the Senate president of the 10th National Assembly.
In a joint communique issued by the Northern Youths Assembly, the groups expressed their confidence in Senator Kalu’s leadership qualities and track record of business, political and administrative leadership sagacity.
As a successful business mogul and renowned philanthropist, Senator Kalu has demonstrated competence in the Nigerian public space and has earned the confidence and trust of the president-elect, vice president-elect, his fellow senators, and Nigerians in general.
The Northern Youths Assembly for Good Governance believes that Senator Kalu’s unprecedented life-changing projects executed as a senator representing Abia North Senatorial District are a testament to the fact that he is capable of superintending over a Senate that will come up with legislation capable of bringing forth tremendous development to Nigeria.
The National Secretary of Northern Youths Assembly, Comrade Tukur Liman, stated that the incoming administration of Asiwaju BAT has the need to correct the perceived anomalies in the marginalization of ethnic entities in the polity, and it is apt to streamline the power-zoning of the critical positions of the ruling party to address injustice, unfairness, and inequality.
He further emphasized that the South East zone, like the other afflicted ones, deserves the slot of the Senate President as a compensation balancing trophy. Once the Eastern-necessity propositions are imbibed by the cross-sections of political players (North and South), the search for the most qualified, experienced, resourceful, devoted, and committed team player from the zone becomes easier to accomplish.
Therefore, the Northern Youths Assembly for Good Governance calls on all well-meaning Nigerians, the president-elect, vice president-elect, party chairman/NWC, distinguished senators-elect, and all key party critical stakeholders to support Senator Orji Uzor Kalu to emerge as the Senate President of the 10th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
We believe that with Senator Kalu’s leadership, the Senate will be able to work together for the betterment of Nigeria and all Nigerians.
