No Zoning Agreement In Place For Anambra 2025, Says APC

Listen to article

Contrary to popular belief, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State has clarified that it does not have a zoning arrangement in place, debunking widespread speculation.

The APC claims that the controversial zoning plan was actually concocted by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) during Peter Obi’s tenure as governor, and has no connection to their party.

Previously, senior members of the party, spearheaded by Sir Innocent Obi, had declared that the zoning arrangement was a unified agreement among all political parties in the state.

But in a sharp rebuttal, the APC issued a statement on Saturday, authored by Dr. Valentine Iliobi, Publicity Secretary, dismissing the claims made by the party’s elder statesmen as entirely unfounded.

APC said, “It has come to the attention of the Anambra State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on a trending story purportedly published by a group known as the All Progressives Congress (APC) Elders Forum led by one Chief Innocent Obi, staging that the zoning of the APC 2025 governorship ticket to the Anambra South Senatorial District should be sacrosanct.

For the sake of clarity, the Anambra State chapter of the APC is stating unequivocally that it does not recognize any zoning arrangements, and all members are free to participate equally.

“Also, APC as a party was not involved in any agreement with any political party or parties as regards to zoning as being falsely peddled by the group in their publications.

“The APC has always provided a level playing field for all governorship aspirants under the platform of the party to participate irrespective of their Senatorial zones. This practice has not changed.

“We, therefore, call on well-meaning members of our party to disregard the said publication insinuating any existing zoning arrangement by the APC.

“The APC also wishes to use this medium to caution against any form of unnecessary rhetoric or utterances by party members or groups that are capable of heating up the polity ahead of the 2025 governorship election season.

“The APC is a united family and as such, any crucial decision that will be taken by the party would be done collectively.

“The APC remains committed in its effort to give Ndi Anambra a viable alternative to the failed party called the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) that has grossly mismanaged the affairs of Ndi Anambra in the past 18 years,” the party said.
