The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), may have decided to zone the position of the national chairman of the party to the North Central zone.
The South East is also expected to get the national secretary, while the deputy national chairman (South) is expected to go to the South-South.
A top chieftain of the party stated that the party would be alternating certain positions.
He said positions that were occupied by northerners in the last National Working Committee would be given to southerners and vice versa.
The chieftain said: “Discussions are ongoing. So far, we have agreed that the North-Central will take the national chairmanship position while the South-South will take the national deputy chairman (South) and then the South-East will get the national secretary position.
“Also, the plan is that all positions that the North occupied in the last NWC will now be occupied by the South. Of course, everyone who wants to contest has the right to do so but this is the plan for now. Other positions will be determined in due course.”
The APC is also expected to set up sub-committees that will handle several aspects of its convention ranging from publicity to budget, security and logistics.
The members of the caretaker committee met in Abuja on Tuesday but had yet to finalise discussions and agreed to meet again on Wednesday.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Chairman, Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, announced that the APC national convention will hold on February 26, 2022.
Buni, who stated this while delivering his keynote address at the Progressives Women Congress held in Abuja declined stating the venue of the convention.
