Written by News Room on February 23, 2022
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has zoned its chairmanship to the north ahead of the 2023 elections.
Governors Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna) and Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), announced this at a media briefing, which held after President Muhammadu Buhari’s meeting with governors of the ruling party.
El-Rufai said the party has agreed to swap the current vacant positions in the National Working Committee (NWC) between the Northern and Southern parts of the country ahead of March 26 national convention, saying it is a very simple, equitable and fair formula.
By implication, the chairmanship position, which has been held by former Governors John Odigie-Oyegun and Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State from the South will now go to the North.
The brief meeting that took place at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa in Abuja, were attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and 19 governors, including those of Yobe, Kano, Kogi, Ekiti, Nasarawa, Kwara, Ebonyi, Jigawa, Lagos and Imo.
