In what many observers believe it was an indirect attack on the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress APC, Bola Tinubu,, President Mohammadu Buhari has said that nobody will sit in Lagos and determine where the party will zone Presidency to..
Acccording to him, the issue of zoning in APC will be determined by the party and not any single individual.
He made this remark in an interview with Arise Television which aired on Thursday.
He noted that the caretaker committee of the APC led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State was working to restructure the party.
He said, “I told the acting chairman and a committee to give me the report by the end of the month on the convention they are going to conduct and then arrange general elections until 2023. And we started this from bottom to the up, so that members of the party will be sure they are involved in decision making.
“Nobody is just going to sit in Lagos and tell them what to do. This is what we are arranging.”
Recall that several stakeholders of the ruling party which include Asiwaju BolaTinubu have been clamouring for the party to zone the Presidency to the South
The apostles of zoning have been insisting that there is gentleman agreement in the party to zone the presidency to the south in 2023.
Many believe that Tinubu is nursing a Presidential ambition.
