North-Central Senators-Elect Reject APC's Zoning Arrangements for NASS Leadership

Senators-elect from the North-Central geopolitical zone have rejected the zoning arrangements for the 10th National Assembly (NASS) leadership positions announced by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The APC had endorsed Senator Godswill Akpabio from the South-South geopolitical zone as the president of the 10th Senate, with Senator Barau Jibrin from the North West as his deputy.

In the House of Representatives, the APC endorsed Tajudeen Abass from the North West as the speaker and Benjamin Kalu from the South East as deputy.

The North Central Senators-elect rejected the zoning arrangement because it excluded their region and did not follow the convention that each of the six geopolitical zones of the country should have one position.

The incoming lawmakers said only the North Central zone did not produce any presiding officer in the forthcoming federal legislature.

Senator-elect Suleiman Ismaila Kawu warned Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to avoid sycophants deceiving him to take a wrong decision on the National Assembly leadership issue.
