Oshiomhole Speaks On APC Zoning Deputy Senate President To South-South




The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole, has dismissed reports that the party has zoned the position of Deputy Senate President to the South-South.

Speaking through his media aide, Simon Egbebulem, Oshiomhole said the party was yet to zone Senate key offices, including the office of Deputy Senate President.

The APC National Chairman also dismissed reports that he was planning to zone the position of Deputy Senate President to Edo North senatorial district.

“Nothing has been done. Nobody has said this is the person for that position. But the party is working on how to share the position so that every part of the country will have a sense of belonging,” Oshiomhole said.

“They have started the process and the party is backing Gbajabiamila and Ahmed Lawan for the position of Speaker and Senate president but other positions, the party is still working to sort out these positions”.

This development has thrown up high-level lobby amongst the three regions, South-East, South-West and South-South, jostling for the position of Deputy Senate President.
