Senators from the South East on Tuesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari over the tension generated in the region as a result of the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

The Senators, who were led by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu said the South East zone was shortchanged by the current Federal Government.

Addressing State House Correspondents after the meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Ekweremadu said they had fruitful discussion with the president over pressing issues affecting the South East.

The Deputy Senate President stressed that the South East is of the option that dialogue remains the best bet in addressing some of the issues affecting the region.

According to Ekweremadu, “For us from the South East, we believe that dialogue is better than any other form of engagement.

“So, we decided to visit the President and present to him some of the concerns of the South East including the issues of roads, general infrastructure; the rail, airports and others.

“We also discussed the issue of security with him and of course the issue of IPOB. We had a good conversation and he promised to look into the issues.”

Also addressing newsmen, the Chairman of the South East Senate Caucus, Eyinnaya Abaribe, maintained that the South East remained the most shortchanged region in the country.

Abaribe said, “This is the southeast caucus in the Senate and we came to see the president because of the issues we have in the southeast.

“We had a fruitful discussion with the President. He has promised us that he is going to look into the problems of southeast.

“We know that there are problems everywhere but we also believe that the South East is the zone that is far much shortchanged at this time than other zones.

“We also talked about the issue of appointments from the South East, especially with respect to the National Security Council. The President also told us that governors of the South East have also engaged him in the same problems we engaged him in.


“We are reassured with the response we got from the President and we look forward to further interaction with him in this manner.”
