“We urge the national leadership of our party to draw strength from the need to revisit the zoning of principal offices in the 9th NASS to further deepen and strengthen the electoral appeal of the party.

“Our great party should remain a truly national political party with broad based support in all parts of the country, the south-east zone inclusive,” he said.

“We urge our members in the zone to resist such and also implore those involved to promptly discontinue same in order to strengthen our party,” he said.

Enukwu called on members of the party in the zone to redouble their efforts in the pursuit of constructive opposition in their various states.

“We should rededicate ourselves to reclaiming the south-east for the APC. This is a challenge which we must confront and defeat,” he said.

Enukwu said that the party was confident that its members that won elective positions during the just concluded elections would meet the aspirations of their people.
