Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, on Tuesday, met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja.

While calling for the zoning of Senate presidency of the 10th national assembly to the Southeast region, the former Abia State governor informed President Buhari of his interest to run for the office of the Senate President in the 10th Assembly.

He argued that the contribution of the South-East to Nigerian goes beyond votes.

Kalu also urged Buhari for the restoration of a Board of Trustees (BoT) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to deal with internal wrangling, which he observed, was becoming excessive.

Speaking to correspondents after the meeting, he said the board should be headed by the President.

He said: “It is just God that saved our party because the quarrel and rancour inside the party is so much.”

According to him, APC requires a person of Buhari’s stature to douse tensions when they arise.

He added: “The party should bring back our Board of Trustees or something that looks like it so that Mr President will be Chairman of the Board of Trustee of the party so that every four or five months, he will come and see how the party is doing.

“It is just God that saved our party, that is the truth, because the quarrel and rancour inside the party is so much. We need a man like President Buhari to be around every three or four months, we’ll go and drag him from Daura and he will settle party matters.”
