“I am please with Tinubu’s ministerial picks from Southeast” – Deputy Speaker

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ben Kalu has dismissed reports that some southeast leaders are irked over persons picked for ministerial positions by President Bola Tinubu.

Kalu, in a statement released by his spokesperson, Levinus Nwabughiogu on Tuesday, said the reports are false, endorsing nominees from the regions.

The president nominated Nkiruka Onyejeocha, Dave Umahi, Uche Nnaji, Uju Ken Ohaneye and Doris Uzoka from the five states in the Southeast. The five were confirmed by the Senate on Monday.

“To protect the sanity of the reading public, the office of the Deputy Speaker is hereby emphatically stating the report is not only a deluge of garbages, unfounded narratives and falsehood at its apogee but also the figment of the overheated imagination of the people and the medium that published it,” he said.

The Deputy Speaker denied the report that he is working with some politicians from the Southeast to fight the president over the ministerial nomination.

“Similarly, it will also be preposterous and vexatious to say that the deputy speaker is working in cahoots with some other leaders to battle the President over the nomination of Onyejiocha of Abia amongst other nominees from the remaining 4 States of the southeast region,” he said.
