The All Progressives Congress, APC has debunked a zoning arrangement list report in circulation ahead of the party’s February 26 national convention.
The Chairman of the Caretaker Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), APC, Hon. Mai Mala Buni said the list which was attributed to him on social media since Monday was baseless.
Disowning the zoning list through a statement on Wednesday in Abuja by his spokesman, Mamaan Mohammed, the APC chairman urged the media to resist unverified stories and rumours and to always verify all issues relating to the party assuring that the doors of the party are always open.
The statement reads: “The attention of His Excellency the Executive Governor of Yobe State and Chairman APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, has been drawn to media publications with purported zoning of offices allegedly announced by him.
“His Excellency has in clear and unambiguous terms denied the said list, saying, it is false, baseless, unfounded, misleading and has nothing to do with him. The Chairman of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Committee said the party has not taken any decision at any fora on anything relating to the zoning of offices.
“The publication is just a figment of the author’s imagination that has nothing to do with the Chairman and the party. The public is hereby urged to disregard the purported list as it is misleading and completely false.”
