The APC says it has not zoned any political position to any geo-political zone, and called on Nigerians to disregard what it described as “the wild speculations” making the rounds concerning the appointment of ministers and the zoning of offices under the incoming Muhammadu Buhari administration.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement in Abuja on Monday said there was no truth to anything that had been dished out by the “hyperactive rumour mill” concerning the issue of appointment, especially the zoning of the National Assembly’s principal positions and other offices.
It said “in the true tradition” of the APC, all issues of public interest would be handled transparently and conveyed to Nigerians through the usual communication channels.
”No appointments have been made and no offices have been zoned. The main concern of our party at the moment is to ensure a smooth transition and to hit the ground running, in the overall interest of the long-suffering people of Nigeria.
”At the appropriate time, Nigerians will be informed of the appointments made and the offices zoned,” APC said.
