Former Ogun state governor and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Olusegun Osoba, has revealed that the ruling party agreed on zoning during its merger stage.

According to Osoba, who was the chairman of the constitution drafting committee of the APC at the time, the gentlemen’s agreement was not drafted in the party's rules in order not to go against the fundamental rights of anyone to aspire to any office in the country.

The minister of works and housing, Babajide Fashola, recently called the attention of the APC leadership to the fact that there was a gentleman’s agreement on zoning between north and south. Fashola said the issue of zoning was more of a gentleman’s agreement in APC and it behooves all parties to honour it.
