North Central Governors have resolved to work to ensure that the position of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is zoned to the region during the next convention of the party.

Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Sani Bello made the disclosure during an advocacy visit by the North Central APC Stakeholders Forum in Minna.

He explained that as the chairman of the North Central Governors Forum he has already held a meeting with governors of the zone and they have all agreed to field a candidate for the post.

“As the chairman of the North Central Governors Forum, I have called a meeting of the Governors and we agreed that we should not be left out. There are many aspirants from North West and North East.”.

The governor also disclosed that ahead of the Party’s National Convention there is going be a rotation of positions, saying, “those allocated to the North will move to the South while those in the south will move to North.”

He said if the position is eventually allocated to the zone, the Governors would meet with stakeholders of the region to take a decision on the best candidate to occupy the seat.

“Yes we have already discussed to go for the office of National chairman but it is not in my place to say who would get it or not”.

Bello insisted that in the past few years, the North Central zone has not been favoured in National positions, despite the large chunk of votes delivered in elections.

Earlier, the Coordinator of the Forum, Dominic Alancha said they were in the state to solicit support for the candidacy of former Governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Umaru Tanko Almakura for the National chairmanship of the party.
