The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied a published report that
its National Working Committee (NWC) met on Monday night and decided
to zone the Senate Presidency to the North-Central and the Speaker of
the House of Representatives to the South-West, saying nothing like
that ever happened.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its National Secretary,
Hon. Mai Mala Buni, the party said it was deeply embarrassed by the
story, which was apparently planted in the media to sow the seeds of
instability in the party.
”The NWC never discussed the issued 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.
APC said nothing has changed since the President-elect said he is
ready to work with anyone from any part of the country who occupies
any of the principal offices of the incoming National Assembly,
including those of the Senate Presidency and the Speaker of the House
