Senate Presidency: Zoning in APC jettisoned, to be reviewed soon, says Izunaso

From Fred Itua, Abuja

One of the aspirants for the position of the President of the Senate, Osita Izunaso, has declared that there is no zoning on leadership positions for the 10th National Assembly.

Izunaso made the declaration while fielding questions from newsmen at the national headquarters of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

According to him, the zoning arrangement announced by the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC early last month has been jettisoned and waiting for review.

He said:  “You are journalists, you’re supposed to be aware of latest development about the issue of zoning of leadership positions for the 10th National Assembly by the national leadership of our great party, APC .

“The National Chairman of the party, Senator Adamu Abdullahi, has been telling aggrieved stakeholders of the party since announcement of the earlier zoning arrangement that it would be reviewed for equity and justice .

“A very good instance of jettisoning of the earlier zoning arrangement, was when the National Chairman countered some party faithful to stop referring to one of the members-elect in the House of Representatives as Speaker by saying nobody should be called Speaker yet.

“In fact, a meeting for the review is slated for the week starting tomorrow, where the national leaders of the committee, will meet the aspirants and decide way out, on election of presiding officers for the 10th National Assembly.”

Izunaso, who was in the 7th Senate from 2007 to 2011, had earlier during a courtesy visit to the national leadership of the NUJ, solicited supports of journalists on his aspiration.
