Deputy Speaker debunks report on Southeast leaders not happy 

The Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Benjamin Kalu has debunked a report displayed on social media, stating that the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Southeast are not at home with the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s choice of ministerial nominees from the zone. According to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the deputy speaker, Levinus Nwabughiogu in Abuja, the report published by an online platform however did not name the so-called leaders.

“Ordinarily, such a report should not be dignified with a rebuttal as it is not worth anyone’s time. But for purposes of clarity and emphasis, Moreso, to protect the sanity of the reading public, the office of the deputy speaker is hereby emphatically stating the report is not only a deluge of garbage, unfounded narratives and falsehood at its apogee but also the figment of the overheated imagination of the people and the medium that published it.

“For starters, masking the so-called leaders puts paid to the fickleness of the report. It’s also unfathomable that the discredited online medium could not live up to the simple journalistic ethos of lending credence to their own report by crediting such a serious publication to identifiable names and faces. Taking to such uncanny fabrication so unabashedly made can only be seen and regarded as a hatchet job which runs at variance with the professional ethics of journalism.

“We hold the profession in high esteem and would therefore appeal that those who intend to cast aspersions on its nobler intentions be held accountable by the relevant authorities and hierarchies.

“We pontificate here that the APC leaders in the southeast are all well-known and are not in the record of possessing any infantile dispositions as to mask their faces when baring their mind on weighty issues of national significance.
