Following the public unveiling of zoning arrangements for the incoming 10th National Assembly, the joint Task – 10th Assembly says it will work to ensure the preferred candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) emerge victorious at the assembly’s inauguration in June.
The APC, on Monday, indicated a preference for Senator Godswill Akpabio as the candidate for Senate President and Hon. Tajudeen Abbas as its preferred candidate for the speakership of the House of Representatives.
In a statement, signed by Chairman of the Joint Task – 10th Assembly,
Rt. Hon. Usman Bello Kumo of the APC, the group made up of members-elect from across the 8 political parties that won elections in the national assembly, welcomed the zoning arrangement for the presiding officers.
Other leaders of the group include Rt. Hon. Kingsley Chinda of the Peoples Democratic Party as Co-Chairman and Rt. Aliyu Sani Madaki of New Nigeria Peoples Party as the Secretary.
They commended the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for what they call “showing leadership in arriving at the party’s choice for those that will lead the 10th National Assembly.”
