The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has asked the party leadership not to zone the Speaker of the House of Representatives to the Southwest in the spirit of fairness.
With the Northwest and Southwest having produced the president and vice president respectively, Nabena said the party should ensure that the zoning arrangement for the Senate President, Deputy Senate President, Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives of the 9th National Assembly reflects the remaining four geopolitical regions of the country.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, Nabena warned that if the party fails to get it right now, 2023 elections might turn out to be a free for all in the ruling party.
“The APC has elected National Assembly members from all geopolitical zones of the country. Hence, the party’s leadership and indeed the presidency must take deliberate efforts to provide a fair and justifiable zoning arrangement for the 9th National Assembly leadership.
