Meanwhile, the party had denied purported zoning arrangement for its planned extraordinary National Convention.
Nabena in a separate statement said “a purported zoning arrangement for the planned National Convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which has gone viral in the social media is fake.
“Party members, supporters, stakeholders and indeed the general public are advised to disregard the fake news.
“The inaugural meeting of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CEONCPC) which held at the APC National Secretariat on Monday did not discuss or issue the fake zoning arrangement for the planned National Convention.
“If and when a zoning arrangement is made for the planned National Convention, it will be officially communicated and publicised”
