The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied a published report published by a national daily that its National Working Committee’s meeting of Monday night resolved to zone the Senate Presidency to the North-Central and the Speaker of the House of Representatives to the South-West, saying the contentious issue of zoning was never discussed.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its National Secretary, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, the incoming governing party said it was deeply embarrassed by the story, which was apparently planted in the media to sow the seeds of instability in the party.
“The NWC never discussed the issue of zoning at its meeting.
“Therefore, the report of its decision on zoning is a figment of the imagination of whoever concocted the story”, it said.
The APC scribe insisted that nothing has changed since President-elect Muhammadu Buhari expressed his willingness to work with anyone from any part of the country who occupies any of the principal offices of the incoming National Assembly, including those of the Senate Presidency and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
