Ahead of the inauguration of the 10th National Assembly on 13th June, a group under the aegis of the Concerned North Central All Progressives Congress (APC) Stakeholders Forum has sent a message to Senator Abdullahi Adamu led National Working Committee, NWC that if it fails to review the zoning template for the Presiding offices for both the Senate and the House of Representatives, the zone may not support the party in 2027.
Addressing Journalists yesterday in Abuja, the National Coordinator of the group, Dominic Alancha who gave the tall warning, however, stressed that the positions of Deputy Senate President and Speaker cannot be zoned to the North-west when the North Central has not been given anything presiding office in the yet to be inaugurated 10th National Assembly.
According to the group, for equity, fairness and justice, the North Central zone cannot be totally excluded from the zoning arrangement.
Recall that the All Progressives Congress, APC had announced the endorsement of Senator Godswill Akpabio and three others for the topmost positions in the National Assembly. Senator Akpabio from South-South was endorsed for Senate President, Senator Jubrin Barau from the North-west for Deputy Senate President, Honourable Tajudeen Abass, North-west for Speaker, House of Representatives and Hon. Kanu, South-East for Deputy Speaker.
