If South-East leaders and elders can convince the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu to resign voluntarily, the geopolitical zone will get the position of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Saturday Tribune has learnt.
This is said to be the new deal being proposed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to get Ekweremadu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) out of the very strategic position he landed in the National Assembly leadership.
This looks like a Greek gift. I would advise the Igbos not to ever accept or agree to it. To begin with, the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation is an appointment post, which means Buhari can wake up one morning and fire the SGF unlike the position of Deputy Senate President which is more secured and would require 2/3 majority of the total senators before he could be removed.
A bird at hand is better than 5 in the forest.
