Ahead the forthcoming All Progressives Congress (APC) National Convention, the  Caretaker /Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party has refuted releasing any zoning arrangement for the National Convention slated for February 26, 2022.

The committee, after its 19th regular meeting, which lasted for two days, released the timetable and schedule of activities for the convention of the party.

Addressing journalists after Wednesday’s meeting at the party’s National Secretariat, the Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, said that at no time did the committee discuss the zoning arrangement for the National Convention.

Akpanudoedehesaid: “I am here to debunk the fake news going around on the social media that we have zoned offices. We are yet to meet on the issue of zoning.

“The news and rumour making round are fake news. We never discussed the issue during our deliberations. People should disregard the story because it is fake news. It is not true.”

However, there is fear that the ruling party is uncertain about the forthcoming convention because of the pending court cases that may  nullify convention.

The crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress has shown no signs of abating even as the national reconciliation committee set up by the party to curb hostilities has failed to make headway three months after it was set up according to reports.

Nigeria News Flight also learnt that with the plethora of cases in court, the APC feared that its national convention could be declared illegal if court cases instituted in several states were not withdrawn or concluded.
