Nigerias President Elect Tinubu Rejects Push To Microzone Senate Presidency To South South

The President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has rejected a push by some forces in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to microzone the senate presidency of the incoming 10th National Assembly to south south geopolitical zone of the country.

On the contrary, Tinubu insisted that the office must be openly zoned to the entire Southern region with no particular preference to any zone.

The development, it was learnt formed the details of what transpired at the Wednesday meeting with the President-elect, the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and some National Assembly members.

It was learnt that Tinubu outrightly rejected proposals made by some members of the APC leadership and three South West senators for the Senate Presidency to be micro-zoned to the South-South.

A reliable source told who pleaded anonymity said they the President-elect reasoned that since the members of the party supported the zoning of the presidency slot that produced him to South, it will not be logical for the same people to now adopt a micro-zoning system.

The source said that Tinubu insisted that zoning the senate presidency to the south will give all the qualified aspirants from South East and South South opportunity go into a fair contest for senators to make their choice, the same way APC delegates made their choice of a presidential candidate out of the lot.

It was also learnt that Tinubu cautioned the leadership against throwing the party into a crisis, directing an amendment to the NWC’s recommendations.
