Yobe State Governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni, has said the Committee is yet to reach any decision on zoning.
A list emerged on Tuesday indicating that the party had zoned its presidential and other offices ahead of the February 26 national convention and the 2023 general elections.

But in a statement on Wednesday, Buni said the list as published by a section of the media was a figment of the author’s imagination and has nothing to do with the Chairman and the party.”
“The attention of His Excellency the Executive Governor of Yobe State and Chairman APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, has been drawn to media publications with purported zoning of offices allegedly announced by him.
“His Excellency has in clear and unambiguous terms denied the said list, saying, it is false, baseless, unfounded, misleading and has nothing to do with him.
“The Chairman of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Committee, said the party has not taken any decision at any fora on anything relating to zoning of offices.
“The public is hereby urged to disregard the purported list as it is misleading and completely false.
“Governor Buni urged the press to resist unverified stories and rumours, and to always verify all issues related to the party assuring that the doors of the party are always open,” Buni said.
