NWC Shifts House of Reps Zoning Formula Meeting to Next Week
Meanwhile, the APC NWC has shifted its meeting over the zoning of the presiding and principal offices for the House of Representatives to next week.
The NWC was scheduled to meet this week but a top member of the committee said that the meeting could not hold because Oshiomhole was out of the country.
“We could not meet this week, apparently because the chairman is out of the country. We will meet next week,” the NWC member said.
Responding however, Issa-Onilu said Oshiomhole’s trip was not in any away delaying the zoning arrangement.
He said, “If we are saying that consultations are going on, then there is really no list to be released yet.
“So, there is no way we can link his trip to the delay in the release of a list that is not available.”
The 21-member NWC has reportedly concluded a tentative zoning formula for the presiding and principal offices for the Senate.
In the tentative zoning formula, the ruling party zoned the positions of the Deputy Senate President and Senate Majority Leader to the South-South and North-Central respectively.
It also zoned the Deputy Majority Leader post to the South-East while the Chief Whip and Deputy Chief Whip positions were zoned to the North-West and South-West respectively.
