APC zones party Chairmanship to the North, Contradicts their declaration of support for Southern Presidency

The All Progressives Congress, APC has zoned its party Chairmanship to the North.

This was made public on Tuesday afternoon after President Muhammadu Buhari met with all the APC Governors to discuss modalities for its upcoming Convention.

Speaking after the meeting, Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai told journalists in the statehouse; “We have agreed a zoning formula for all the six geopolitical zones, and essentially, we swapped. Northern zones will take positions that Southern zones had in the last eight years and vice versa.”

“So, it’s a very simple, equitable, and fair formula. We will now go back and consult at the zonal level, and look at the positions that are available and the process of the convention preparation will start in earnest. So by the grace of God on the 26th of March, we will have done a national convention.”

Recall that COBlog earlier reported that the party has agreed to postpone its convention scheduled for February 26th to March 26th due to internal crises and factions within the party.
