Yari challenges the APC zoning formula and chooses the form of presidency

A former governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, chose the nomination form for the post of president of the Congress of all progressives (APC), challenging the party’s zoning arrangements ahead of the national convention. The ruling party, more than a week ago, zoned his position of national president to the north-central, a development that has prevented at least seven hopefuls from vying for the top job. Zamfara is in the northwestern region. Contrary to the arrangements, a group of drummers in support of Mr. Yari were at the APC national headquarters on Wednesday to choose the former governor’s nomination form. The nomination form for the CPA chairmanship seat has been set at N20 million, while the vice-chairman and other candidates are required to pay N10 million and N5 million, respectively, for the posts. While Mr. Yari hailed from the Northwest, PREMIUM TIMES reported that the posts assigned to the geopolitical zone included Vice President (Northwest), National Legal Counsel, National Organizing Secretary, National Finance Secretary, and Deputy National Youth Leader of the party. . The pro-Yari group that got the ticket for the former governor was headed by Tijani Kaura, the incumbent senator representing Zamfara North in the National Assembly.
