9th NASS’ leadership: Umahi canvasses fair deal for South-East

Chairman of South-East Governors Forum and Ebonyi State Governor, Chief Dave Umahi yesterday called for fair treatment for South-East zone in the leadership of the 9th National Assembly leadership billed for inauguration next month.

Umahi spoke at the Presidential Lodge, Government House, Abakaliki when he  received a contender to the Speakership position of the 9th National Assembly leadership, Hon.
