Nigeria’s ruling All Progressive Congress APC has allocated the party’s national chairmanship to the Northern part of the country ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai, the Kaduna State Governor told newsmen shortly after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, that the party had agreed to divide the vacant top positions in the party between the North and the South before its national convention.
“We have agreed on a system of devolution of power to all political zones. The Northern Zones will have the same positions held by the South in the last eight years, and so will the Southern zones”. He said.
On Monday, the party’s interim executive committee announced that it had canceled its February 26 general assembly and postponed it to March 28.
In addition to the new convention date, the APC has informed the INEC that it will hold a zonal congress on March 6, where leaders will be elected at the zonal level.
Shortly after their meeting with Buhari, Governor El-Rufai said the governors had agreed on a fair plan for every part of Nigeria.
“After our meeting with the president today (Tuesday), we agreed on one thing. We agreed on a fair and efficient system of distribution of posts to all political parties. By the grace of God, on March 26, we will hold a national conference”. He assured.
