The All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has debunked rumours in some quarters that the position of who becomes the 9th National Assembly Deputy Senate President has been zoned to the South-South.
Part of the rumours had even suggested that Oshiomhole was plotting to have Edo North senatorial district, produce the Deputy Senate President.
But in a statement through his media aide, Simon Egbebulem, Oshiomhole said there was no truth in the rumours, adding that the ruling, aside the positions of the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives, was yet to zone National Assembly key offices, including the office of Deputy Senate President.
“Nothing has been done. Nobody has said this is the person for that position. But the party is working on how to share the position so that every part of the country will have a sense of belonging.
“They have started the process and the party is backing Gbajabiamila and Ahmed Lawan for the position of Speaker and Senate president but other positions, the party is still working to sort out these positions,” he said.
