Rep. Tony Nwoye (APC-Anambra) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint the next Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) from the South East.
Nwoye, who represents Anambra East and West Federal Constituency, stated this at an empowerment programme in Nsugbe near Onitsha on Wednesday.
The lawmaker, also a former governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, said the gesture would help market the party in the region.
“Our people are feeling that they are being marginalised.
“The Igbo people are critical to the Nigerian project, we cannot be marginalised perpetually because we did not vote for Buhari out of sheer sentiment.
“The South East deserves the SGF or Deputy Senate President.
