APC denies zoning Senate Presidency, Speaker to North-Central
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied reports that its National Working Committee (NWC) had zoned the seats of the Senate President and House Speaker to the North-Central and South-West respectively.
This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by APC National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni.
According to the statement, the party is deeply embarrassed by the story, apparently planted in the media to sow the seed of instability in the party.
”The NWC never discussed the issue of zoning at its meeting. Therefore, the report of its decision on zoning is a figment of the imagination of whoever concocted the story,” it said.
The statement added that nothing had changed since the President-elect said that he was ready to work with anyone from any part of the country, who occupied any of the principal offices of the incoming National Assembly.
