Senate Leadership: Kalu, Yari, Others Threaten To Revolt On Zoning Arrangement

Aggrieved aspirants in the race for the seat of Senate President in the 10th National Assembly have threatened to disobey the micro-zoning arrangement adopted by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Registering their position at a meeting with the leadership of the party and members of the National Working Committee, said that no aspirant was consulted before the official decision was taken.

Among other things, they added that if the APC leadership fails to restrict the zoning arrangement to geopolitical regions, it could lead to open rebellion because the aggrieved aspirants will brazenly disobey the party.

The lawmakers present at the event were former Zamfara Governor, Abdulaziz Yari; the senator-elect representing Imo West, Osita Izunaso; Sani Musa (Niger East), Umar Sadiq (Kwara North) and Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu.

The development is coming three days after the ruling party had micro-zoned the Senate president position to immediate past Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godwin Akpabio while Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Jibrin Barau, was named as his would-be Deputy Senate President in the 10th Assembly.
