He said the people of the south can not be divided by ethnic sentiment, adding that the south have decided that the senatorial position should go to Akamkpa/Biase to create balance and equity for fairness
Honourable Asuquo who is currently in the house of representatives representing Akamkpa/Biase federal constituency said positions are suppose to be rotated and not to be domiciled in a particular place, that is why he believes in the back to south agenda
He maintained that the people of the southern senatorial district can not be deceived by those who want to remain in power to exploit the people noting that 2023 elections will not be about political party, adding that it will be about performance, integrity, persons and above all, it will be respect for voters right

He also predicted that the Labour party candidate Mr peter Obi will win the 2023 election, drawing his strength from what happened in 1963 where Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe won in a free and fair election, thirty years after, Chief MKO Abiola also won in a free and fair election, then in 2023 election, Obi is going to win in a free and fair election he assured.
