The spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, APC, denies zoning NASS (National Assembly) leadership positions for the incoming 10th Assembly.
APC spokesperson, Felix Morka, signed a statement released by Mr. Bayo Onanuga to disclaim media speculations on the matter.
Although litgations trail the results of the 2023 general elections, APC however commands a majority in the incoming Assembly.
Consequently, re-elected members from five geographical zones are currently campaigning for the Senate President and House Speaker positions.
The media, including the social media, continuously offered “insider reports” of how the party already shared the positions among the zones.
Onanuga placed the APC Statement on his verified social media handle last night, 27 April.
In it, Morka said the party has yet to decide how to zone the positions and will inform the public when it does.
The statement reads as follows:
“The attention of the All Progressives Congress has been drawn to versions of zoning arrangements for the 10th National Assembly leadership positions in circulation in sections of social media.
“The information did not emanate from the party and should be disregarded.
“To be clear, the party has yet to zone positions of leadership of the 10th National Assembly.
“Any decisions made in that regard will be duly communicated via the party’s official information channels.”
Morka, a lawyer, is APC’s Publicity Secretary.
A third of the incoming national assembly members are hustling to grab leadership and other “juicy” positions in both the Senate and House of Representatives.
