The All Progressive Congress (APC) has disowned the zoning arrangement publication making rounds on the internet which is purported to have emanated from the leadership of the party.
The Secretary of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) , Senator John James Akpanudoedehe attributed the list to the handiwork of persons interested in elective positions in the party. He urged members of the public to disregard such list.
He said: “Our people should disregard the list. It is not from the Caretaker Committee, it is not from the party.”
He maintained the party will be required to make extensive consultations before such arrangement would be arrived at, adding zoning of offices is yet to be on the table of the Caretaker Committee.
“As far as I am concerned, the last Caretaker Committee meeting we had, we did not discussed that. That is not what we are concerned with now. What we are concerned with is data collection. How to collect data without making mistake.
“Let me say that zoning is not for the Caretaker Committee alone. It has to do with the President, it has to do with other major stakeholders, it has to do with a lot of people.
“I want to mute the speculation. The list is not from us ( Caretaker Committee). The President is not in town.
“There is no way such decision will be taken without consulting with the President, consult with the governors and other major stakeholders.”
