APC to Zone 10th National Assembly Leadership after Ramadan


Senate spokesperson, Ajibola Bashiru says the leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) will take a decision on zoning the Leadership of the 10th National Assembly at the end of the Ramadan fast.

Bashiru made this known on Wednesday 12th April, 2023.

“I believe that our party will ultimately take a decision on the zoning possibly after Ramadan and certainly before June when the next Assembly will be convened,” he said. 

According to him, some of the parameters to be considered for the emergence of the next Senate President and the next Speaker of the House of Representatives include ranking, competence, capacity, religion, zonal contribution to the victory of bola Tinubu in the February 25 presidential poll, amongst others.

“It will be in the best interest of our party to zone the offices so that we can narrow the number of contestants because when you have eight persons from a single political party contesting, it creates a problem for us to have a cohesive force going into the election,” the APC lawmaker stated.

The APC won a majority of the legislative seats during the elections with over 55 Senate seats out of 109 and over 160 out of 360 House of Representatives seats.

Many APC chieftains and legislative member-elect have expressed interest in the highly coveted positions in the red and green chambers. They include Orji Kalu, Jibrin Barau, Godswill Akpabio, Dave Umahi, Ahmad Lawan, Ali Ndume, Abdulaziz Yari, Osita Izunaso, amongst others.

The lawmaker, however, said the APC National Working Committee (NWC) and the Party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) has not taken any decision yet on which of the six geopolitical zones to produce the next senate president.
