The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ogun State has agreed to zone the party’s governorship ticket to the West senatorial district which has not produced a governor since the creation of the State.
This disclosure was made by the immediate acting chairman of the party, Alhaji Tajudeen Lemboye while addressing an extended meeting of the party’s members that the decision was the collective wish of the party.
Lemboye said the party is in tune with the State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, who had indicated interest to support the zone.
The Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Sola Lawal said the decision was a unanimous one which automatically determines where other positions at the Congress such as chairman, secretary and other executive members would be zoned.
