Ahead of the June 23 national convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), no fewer than 179 members have indicated interest in contesting various positions of the party.
Kastina State governor and chairman, sub-committees of the party, Aminu Bello Masari, made this known yesterday in Abuja during the screening exercise.
He assured hat his panel would abide by the rules and regulations guiding the convention, saying: “The total number of aspirants nationwide is about 179, although specifically, I cannot immediately tell you their geographic spread.”
When asked whether the committee may disqualify any of the aspirants, Masari said it was premature to determine that saying the report would be presented tomorrow.
On whether the party was still maintaining its zoning formula, Masari declared: “You can only contest for any position zoned to your zone.
“So far, those who applied for positions from the Northwest are from the Northwest and nobody from the Northeast or elsewhere has applied for the positions zoned to the Northwest.”
