Former president of the Senate, Chief Ken Nnamani has described the forthcoming South-east economic summit as a veritable platform for leaders of the geopolitical zone to interact and chart a new dynamic, political and economic future for the people.

Senator Nnamani spoke when he received the Chairman of the Central Planning Committee of the Summit, Chief Chris Obiefuna and the President of the South-east Chambers of Commerce Forum, Sir. Okechukwu Nwadinobi, in Abuja.

He expressed confidence with the timing and opportunity the summit would provide for the zone to x-ray its past political and economic agenda in a holistic way devoid of political party coloration in order to chart a new political and economic agenda. Such agenda, he noted would propel and sustain the zone's thrust that would lead it into an egalitarian economy of the 21st century.

This he stressed should be in line with the zone's determination to keep pace with President Jonathan's transformation agenda. The summit, he believes would also produce a political and economic blue print that would aid the transformation of the zone into an economic force that would contribute its quota towards the overall development of the zone and the nation as a whole.

He therefore appealed to all stakeholders of South-east zone to endeavour to attend the summit and offer their suggestions and proposals on how to move the zone from its present position to that of a leading 21st century economy.
