EKO HOT BLOG reports that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that there is no truth in the assertion it had zoned its presidential ticket to any part of the country.
Some media reports had claimed that the leadership of the APC is working towards zoning its presidential ticket to the North-east, with the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan likely to emerge as its presidential candidate in the 2023 elections.
Asked if the APC has zoned the presidential ticket, APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Barrister Felix Morka, said:
“There is no such decision made by the National Working Committee (NWC).”
According to the reviewed timetable released by Morka on Wednesday, the APC will now hold its special convention to elect its presidential candidate on May 29 and 30.
All political parties have June 3 as the deadline for the conduct of their primaries according to the guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

However, the APC hierarchy had side-stepped clamour to zone its presidential ticket to the South on the ground that the current leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, is from the North and the National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, is also from the North.
