- The APC has distanced itself from a zoning arrangement list trending on social media
- The party's reaction was contained in a tweet via its official Twitter handle on Wednesday, April 14
- John James Akpanudoedehe, the national secretary of the caretaker committee called on Nigerians to disregard the list
The All Progressives Congress (APC) zoning list which has been circulating on social media has been disowned by the party's Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).
This was made known on Wednesday, April 14, by Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, the national secretary of the caretaker committee.
Legit.ng gathered that a list containing the zoning arrangement for positions in the party's National Working Committee (NWC) went viral on social media.
The arrangement allegedly released by the APC also contained the region where major national elective offices such as the presidential ticket are zoned to.
In the list presidential slot was zoned to the south while vice president, north, among others.
Akpanudoedehe in a tweet via the ruling party's official Twitter account urged the general public to disregard the purported list.
He insisted that the APC is yet to zone its offices, adding that the party will be required to make extensive consultations before such arrangement would be made.
Ahead of the party's forthcoming national convention, Akpanudoedehe explained zoning of offices is yet to be on the table of the committee.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the conversation on the 2023 presidency has taken another dimension as Malam Ibrahim Shekarau said there is no arrangement for the zoning of the presidency in the constitution of the APC.
The former two-term Kano state governor and former minister made this known on Sunday, January 3, while answering questions from journalists.
The senator representing Kano Central, however, noted that it is by the virtue of common sense and fairness that the power should leave the north to the southern region of the country.
