He said, while receiving in audience North Central APC Stakeholders Forum which was on an advocacy visit, that in the past few years, the zone has not been favoured in National positions despite having highest votes in elections.
According to him: “As the Chairman of the North Central Governors’ Forum, I called a meeting of the governors and we agreed that we should not be left out.”
He explained that if the position is eventually allocated to the zone, the governors would meet with stakeholders to decide the best candidate to occupy it.
