The leadership of PDP, in the zone also took the same stand.
Their position was conveyed through the Chairman of the South East Governors Forum and governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi.
Reacting to the development, Jibrin mocked the party for making their first most important appointment without due consultation.
