He further stated that, “Distinguished Senator Omo-Agege was unanimously chosen as the political leader of the South South Zone by the Caucus.
“The zonal party caucus also passed a vote of implicit confidence on the leadership of the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
“The zonal caucus working committee shall set up reconciliation committees to complement the work of the national reconciliation committee for Rivers State, Edo State and Cross River State.
