APC Speaks On Chairmanship Zoning


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied zoning its national chairmanship to the North Central.

Sen. James Akpanudoedehe, the National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) said this on Monday in Abuja when he spoke with newsmen.

Akpanudoedehe was reacting to a media report that the party had zoned the position to the North Central, adding that the issue of zoning was not part of the mandates of the CECPC.

“I have the mandate to report that whatever decision the CECPC takes and to the best of my knowledge the committee has not to discussed zoning,’’ he said.

He added that with the party`s national convention slated for February 2022, it was expected that party members would come up with different zoning speculations.

“People are just flying what will favour their interest, all I know is that the caretaker committee has not discussed or reached a zoning decision,’’ he said.

Also, Sen. Victor Lar, Media Director, Sen. Ali-Modu Sheriff Campaign Organisation, said that the report was laughable describing it as figment of the imagination of those who planted it.

Sen. Ali-Modu Sheriff, a two-term governor of Borno, was a frontline aspirant for the APC chairmanship.

“We find the purported story as very laughable because the organs of the party that are supposed to communicate that kind of information are not the ones communicating it.

“For that reason, we will take it with a pinch of salt.

“Again, the APC as a party has never adopted zoning, therefore, the story of it zoning the national championship to the North Central can better be described as a figment of the imaginations of those who planted it.

“We find the report as the very poor scheming of people who are scared of contesting the position with Sheriff,’’ Lar said.

He said it was obvious that Sheriff’s hard work and his manner campaign had unsettled other aspirants.
