Zoning: APC Caretaker Committee Meets This Week

Party led by the Yobe State Governor, Mallam Mai Mala Buni, agreed to meet ahead of the party’s February 26 national convention.

This is coming after the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo disclosed that the ruling party would remain committed to the welfare of the common man.

A member of the CECPC told THISDAY that the caretaker committee would also set up a zoning committee to address the issue of the zoning of the party’s elective positions.

The zoning committee will consider equity and justice before coming up with its position on zoning, the member added.

The CECPC member, who urged members of the party to ignore all former reports of zoning, also described such reports as fake.

He said that the expected zoning committee would be guided by justice and fairness by ensuring that all zones and states are fairly represented.

In relation to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC being summoned to approve the zoning arrangement before implementation, he said the Buni-led committee would play the dual role of the NWC and NEC of the party.

“We are a child of circumstance. We are playing two roles in one. CECPC is playing the role of both the working committee and the NEC.

“There won’t be any NEC meeting, but we are working with the governors of the party and others to ensure that everything about the convention is set on course and that there will be no trouble. We shall deliver a smooth and transparent convention.

“After our meeting this week, every doubting person will keep quiet. At the end of the day, because there is no NEC, the report of the zoning committee will be sent to the President who is the leader of the party and the governors for their perusal and advice and we are set to go for the February 26 date,” he explained.

However, one of the chairmanship aspirants, Saliu Mustapha has insisted that the North-central geopolitical zone should produce the next national chairman of the APC. “It is for balancing and equity. We are the bridge linking the North and South,” he said.
