The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed as reckless and baseless reports that the party has zoned its vice presidential slot to the South-West opposed to South-East.
In a statement by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the report was the handiwork of those threatened by the prospects of the party’s candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra.
''Having realized that their attempt to milk the so-called deportation issue has fallen flat on its face, these desperate politicians have now resorted to outright lies and wild imagination. They figure that if they played the South-West against the South-East, by saying the APC has zoned the VP slot to the former over the latter, some people may just fall for it. This is cheap politics,” it said.
APC assured Nigerians that the party has, at no time, discussed the issue of its presidential and vice presidential slots, hence could not have zoned any of the posts.
''Our party is an inclusive national party which will definitely accommodate the interest of all Nigerians in all its actions. We are therefore urging all the good people of Nigeria to ignore this fabricated story. There is no iota of truth in it,” the party said.
