North Central APC forfeits zoning rights to North West

Youth leaders of the All Progressives Congress APC in the North Central have aligned themselves with the reported nomination of the immediate-past Governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje for the office of the party’s National Chairman, despite the development running contrary to the zoning formula of the party.
At a news conference in Abuja today, Convener, Coalition of North Central APC Youths and Support Groups, Okpokwu Ogenyi says the zone is a political hub owing to its political dominance and the North Central people are far above trivialities, greed and selfishness when it comes to national interest.
Although the current zoning formula cedes the office to North Central, APC youth leaders from the zone say they have agreed to forfeit such right.
This development comes as Ward Chairmen of the party from across the country and a group of critical stakeholders of the party declare support for Ganduje’s nomination.
