North Central Zonal Woman Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Princess Zahrah Audu, has called for appropriate inclusion and integration of the geo-political zone in the nation’s power-sharing scheme.
Princess Zahrah’s call is coming on the heels of recent pronouncement of the party zoning some key positions to the National Assembly and the conspicuous absence of the North Central in the zoning formula.
She made this known in her interaction with some critical stakeholders of the party in Abuja on Friday.
Princess Zahrah said that the North-Central Zone contributed immensely to the victory of the party in the presidential and national assembly elections which today is responsible for the party holding strong at the centre.
While calling on the party leadership to re-access its stance, she said that the North Central must be well integrated in the scheme of things based on the sacrifices and immense contributions made in achieving victory for the party both at the Parliament and executive level.
She added that wider consultation with stakeholders must be made to ensure that those that must represent the zone are people of good character, vision and capacity to provide good leadership and representation that would chart a new developmental agenda for the North Central zone.
Princess Zahrah berated the past method of nomination for appointment which she said always reward those that didn’t contribute to the party’s struggle at the expense of those that worked tirelessly day and night for the success of the party whose hope are later quashed via the bad reward mechanism.
She, however, expressed her optimism that the party will do what is right and ideal this time around by not only giving the zone a proper recognition via appointment but ensure that those given are deserving of such positions.
