THE All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied Bukola Saraki’s claim that the party zoned the Senate Presidency to the North Central geopolitical zone of the country.

Saraki, an aspirant to the position, had on Tuesday May 26, 2015, stated in a tweet that the party had reaffirmed its position to zone the seat to his North Central zone.

Surprisingly, few hours later, the party, through a statement issued by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, shared on the Facebook wall of Kaduna governor-elect, Nasir El Rufai, refuted the claim.

The APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu, it would be recalled, had told journalists last week that the party would not zone the Senate Presidency and would not compromise merit during the process of selecting the occupant of the seat.
