The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is in a crucial meeting with Governors elected under the platform of the party.
The agenda for the meeting was not made public but a source in the NWC said it was called to discuss the 10th National Assembly leadership zoning arrangements.
Recently the party announced a consensus zoning arrangement that ceded the Senate President to South-South and nominated Senator Godswill Akpabio for the position, while the office of the Deputy Senate President is zoned to North West with Senator Jibrin Barau penciled in for the position.
In the House of Representatives, North West geopolitical zone is to produce the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker goes to South East zone.
Tajudeen Abbas from Kaduna and Benjamin Kalu, Abia State are slated as consensus candidates for the Speaker and Deputy Speaker.
The Governors started arriving at the Muhammadu Buhari House, the party headquarters around 5:20 pm and went straight to the NWC Hall for the meeting with the party leadership.
