…By Babatunde Lucas for TDPel Media. The Tinubu-Shettima Ambassadors (TSA) and the National Forum for All Progressive Congress (APC) Ward Chairmen in Niger State have emphasized the importance of including the Northcentral region in the party’s zoning of leadership positions for the 10th National Assembly.


Mixed Reactions: While some stakeholders in the region feel that the appointment of George Akume as the Secretary General of the Federation (SGF) addressed their concerns, others insist that the Northcentral must be represented in the party’s zoning arrangement.
