No zoning arrangement for planned national convention – APC

The Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CEONCPC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday said the party has not slated a zoning arrangement to be approved by the forthcoming National Convention.

The party dismissed as fake the news item making round on the social media that CEONCPC, at its inaugural meeting on Monday, discussed and issued a new zoning arrangement for political offices to be rectified by the national convention.

In a statement signed by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, said the purportedly zoning arrangement was fake.


According to Nabena: “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 APC spokesperson said at no time during the inaugural meeting of CEONCPC which held at the APC National Secretariat on Monday was such issue discussed. He also said that the committee did not also issue any statement on the fake zoning arrangement for the planned National Convention.

Nabena added: “If and when a zoning arrangement is made for the planned National Convention, it will be officially communicated and publicised”.

According to the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, the inaugural meeting of the committee only discussed and adopted a six-point working document aimed at repositioning the party.

The 13- member committee, which has all in session, 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.

The meeting approved the composition of the following Committees: Edo State Governorship National Campaign Coucil and Consultation/Reconciliation Committees for Edo and Ondo States ahead of the forthcoming governoship elections.
