So we decided to visit the President and present to him some of the concerns of the South East, including the issues of roads, general infrastructure, the rail and airports. We had a good conversation and he promised to look into the issues” he told state house correspondents
Senator Abaribe who is the leader of the South East Senators caucus, said they also raised concerned about how the region has been shortchanged in the scheme of things.
“We know that there are problems everywhere but we also believe that the south-east is the zone that is far more short-changed at this time than other zones. We also talked about the issue of appointments from the South-east, especially with respect to the National Security Council. The President also told us that governors of the South-east have also engaged him on the same problems”he said
