PDP has been finally buried, a party that promised Igbos a lot but delivered disappointment.
Headlinenews investigative reports confirm that many politicians across the country have expressed disappointment in the way the SouthEast decided to vote for only a SouthEasterner as President with no consideration for any other zone, while other zones as detribalised Nigerians voted for the SouthEastern Candidate. For this reason, many are of the opinion that the dynamics in the SouthEast which made other Candidates and Political Parties lose their invested political capital does not encourage representation, recohnition or compensation with such a high position in the National Assembly. Many are therefore routing for a consistent Politician like Akpabio who despite the odds has been able to remain consistent with his political base and delivered his Constituency.
There are various criteria to be considered and the National Assembly is on it now.
The discussion continues and Headlinenews shall keep our readers posted with the update.
