The senator-elect from Abia North senatorial District said this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Thursday.

“Let me be honest with you even if the party asks me not to run, I will run on the floor of the House, this is one position I have to run for because you cannot leave the Southeast alone, you can’t leave them behind,” Kalu said.

He further stressed that giving the Southeast a worthy position is in line with ensuring that the nation is ruled with equity.

“We are in the process of doing the right thing and the East will be given a place in the scheme of things. I am asking that the East should be given the Deputy Senate President.

“There is a high level of discussions about that and I’m sure that by partisan it would be a law in the House,” he added.
