President Muhammadu Buhari has on Thursday said the issue of zoning in the All Progressives Congress (APC) will be determined by the party and not any single individual.
The President added that no one will for instance sit in Lagos and determine what the party will do.
Buhari added that the caretaker committee of the APC led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State was working to reposition the party.
He stated this during an interview with Arise Television which aired on Thursday and monitored by ANLNews.
Buhari said, “I told the acting chairman and a committee to give me the report by the end of the month on the convention they are going to conduct and then arrange general elections until 2023. And we started this from bottom to the up, so that members of the party will be sure they are involved in decision making.
“Nobody is just going to sit in Lagos and tell them what to do. This is what we are arranging.”
Recall that several leaders of APC have been clamouring for the party to zone the Presidency to the South, adding that there was a gentleman agreement for such when the party was being formed in 2013.
