The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state, has appealed to
the national leadership of the party to ensure that the zoning
arrangement which allotted the position of the senate president to the
North-Central zone remains unchanged.
This formed part of the resolutions of the APC’s state working
committee at the end of its meeting in Ilorin yesterday.
The party, which also organized a special prayer for the actualization
of the aspiration of Dr. Bukola Saraki to becoming the senate
president in the eighth Senate, insisted that the position of the
senate president should remain in the North-Central in the interest of
fairness, justice and equity.
The special prayer which was held at the party’s secretariat in Ilorin
was led by Ustaz Usman Basambo Jabata who prayed Allah to make it
possible for Saraki to become the next senate president because of his
devotion to the development of Kwara state and kindness to the masses.
In a communiqué issued at the end of the meeting of its central
working committee, the APC noted that the party recorded hundred
percent 100% victory in the just concluded general elections in the
zone and therefore, deserved the position of the senate president
which the national working committee of the party had allotted to it.
The CWC expressed its gratitude to members of the National Working
Committee of the party (NWC) for deeming it fit to zone the exalted
position to the North-Central zone.

decision in recognition of our zone’s enormous contribution to the
