National Assembly: Ebonyi Governor Calls For Zoning Of Leadership Positions

Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has advised the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to ensure it adopts a zoning formular for the emergence of leaders of the 10th National Assembly.

He gave the advice while speaking to State House Correspondents, after he met behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.

He said doing so will ensure equity and balance of power among the geo-political zones of the country.

I am a party man and I am very committed to a descent process. The party and the President-Elect directed that we shouldn’t talk about that yet but we should all go back and work for the gubernatorial and Houses of Assembly elections.

But I believe strongly that zoning must be done by the party. It should not allow everybody to jump to the race and when the time comes for zoning they must look at all the parameters in order to carry every region along. This is very important,” he said.

Commenting on the chances of the APC in the forthcoming Governorship election in the South East, the Governor expressed optimism that the APC will do well.

I would, first of all, like to analyze my State although we are going to have an election there, out of the five in the region. Governorship elections will be held in Abia, Ebonyi, and Enugu, the other two are off-season. But there will be House of Assembly elections in all five states.

In my State (Ebonyi), I have nothing to worry about because I think God has done the work for me. Our candidate is going to emerge no matter how desperate the opposition will want to thrive.

First and foremost, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has already announced that there is no gubernatorial candidate for the Labour Party in Ebonyi

But even if there was a candidate standing for election, he is no match to the candidate of the APC so I am very sure that we are going to win,” Umahi stressed.
