Northern Groups urge APC to pick Deputy Senate President from N’central

The amalgamation of the All Progressives Congress Northern Forums in Nigeria has urged the National Working Committee of the party to consider the North-Central geopolitical zone for the position of the Deputy President of the 10th National Assembly.

Habibu Salau, the Coordinator of the Coalition groups, under the aegis of Almagamation of the All Progressives Congress Northern Forums in Nigeria, made the appeal on Monday in a statement speaking with journalists in Abuja.

He said Senator Sani Musa, who is a ranking senator from the North-Central geopolitical zone, is eminently qualified to be elected either as the Senate President or Deputy.

According to him, “If the leadership of the All Progressives Congress decided to zone the position to the South, the Deputy Senate President should automatically go to the North-Central.

“In fairness, the North-Central deserves to produce the next Senate President or Deputy because of the impressive performance of the APC in the zone in the last election going by the numbers of APC senators produced from different geopolitical zones.

“For instance, the South-West produced 15 out of 18; South-South had seven out of 18; South-East with six out of 15; North-Central got 10 out of 19; North-East, nine out of 18 and North-West, eight out of 21.”

The group urged the APC NWC to therefore consider all these factors before embarking on the zoning arrangements for the next leadership of the 10th Senate.
