Ruling All Progressives Congress says it has yet to arrive at any zoning formula for the offices in its National Working Committee ahead of its planned National Convention.
Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Yekini Nabena, said in a statement on Tuesday that zoning of party offices was never part of the agenda at Monday’s inaugural meeting of the Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee.
He said, “A purported zoning arrangement for the planned National Convention of the All Progressives Congress APC which has gone viral in the social media is fake.
“Party members, supporters, stakeholders and indeed the general public are advised to disregard the fake news.
“The inaugural meeting of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CEONCPC) which held at the APC National Secretariat on Monday did not discuss or issue the fake zoning arrangement for the planned National Convention.”
Nabena added that if and when a zoning arrangement is made for the planned National Convention, it would be officially communicated and publicised.
He said the committee at its inaugural meeting unanimously adopted a six-point working document aimed at repositioning the party.
Nabena added, “Members also renewed their commitment to work as a family in the interest of the party and appealed to all leaders and members to give full cooperation to the Committee in the discharge of its duties/mandate.
