The ruling All Progressives Congress has damaged its silence following viral zoning preparations beforehand of 2023.
An All Progresives Congress 2023 zoning arrangment listing presently in circulation has been discredited by way of the party’s Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).
The zoning association for principal countrywide optional places of work and for positions in the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) allegedly launched by means of the celebration went viral on social media.
The purported association used to be titled: “BREAKING: APC declares zoning association beforehand of 2023 election year. APC 2023 presidential ticket zoning and National Working Committee.”
By the listing the presidential ticket is zoned to South, Vice President – North, Senate President – South, Deputy Senate President – North whilst Speaker – North and Deputy Speaker – South.

The workplace of the Auditor is zoned to North, National Youth Leader – South, National Woman Leader – South, Publicity Secretary – South and Persons With Disability PWD Leader – South.
But the Secretary of the Caretaker Committee of the party, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe disowned the list.
He said: “Our human beings ought to push aside the list. It is now not from the Caretaker Committee, it is no longer from the party.”
He maintained the birthday party will required to make sizeable consultations earlier than such association would be arrived at, including zoning of places of work is but to be on the desk of the Caretaker Committee.
“As a ways as I am concerned, the final Caretaker Committee assembly we had, we did no longer mentioned that. That is now not what we are involved with now. What we are involved with is facts collection. How to gather information except making mistake.
“Let me say that zoning is now not for the Caretaker Committee alone. It has to do with the President, it has to do with different main stakeholders, it has to do with a lot of people.
“I choose to mute the speculation. The listing is no longer from us ( Caretaker Committee). The President is now not in town.
“There is no way such choice will be taken barring consulting with the President, seek advice from with the governors and different main stakeholders.”
He blamed the listing on circulation on men and women fascinated in contesting for one workplace or the different in the party, insisting the Caretaker Committee can’t be pressurised into taking incorrect decision.
