The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Barr. Felix Morka has dismissed speculations indicating that the party is planning to zone its 2023 presidential ticket to the Northeast.
A report from Thisday had stated that the APC was working towards zoning its presidential ticket to the northeast, with the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan likely to emerge as its presidential candidate in the 2023 elections.

There’s no such decision made by the National Working Committee,” Morka said.
