2025 election: We have no zoning arrangement – Anambra APC

The Anambra State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the party has no zoning formula and has never been part of any zoning arrangement with any political party in the state for the 2025 governorship election.

The party maintained that it has always given every member of the party contesting for position the opportunity to vie for the party’s ticket regardless of where that person comes from.

Valentine lyke- Oliobi, Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, stated this while reacting to comments credited to a chieftain of the APC, Pope Amaefuna, who warned the party against fielding any candidate outside of the southern zone so as not to disrupt the existing zoning formula in the state.

lyke-Oliobi insisted that the 2025 governorship candidate of the APC would emerge by popular mandate given by the members of the party or elected delegates depending on the mode of primary to be adopted.

Stating that Amaefuna is unknown to Anambra APC, the party said he is neither a registered member of the party in any of the 326 ward chapters nor is he known at the state level..

The statement said: “The party also seriously frowns at the crazy allegation by the said Pope Amaefuna describing bonafide members of the party in Anambra State who are not favourably disposed to zoning as saboteurs who have positioned themselves on the negotiation table with the failed party called APGA in order to sabotage the APC. Such an allegation is simply a product of hallucination.

“The APC in Anambra State re-affirms its commitment to give every individual aspiring to fly the party’s flag in the 2025 Anambra Governorship election equal opportunity and a level playing field to do so. It is instructive to note that the APC at the national level during the last presidential primary did not zone the presidential ticket but allowed every interested individual to vie for its presidential ticket. This is what the party has always done, Anambra APC will continue to toe that line.

“The 2025 governorship candidate of the APC will emerge by popular mandate given by the members of the party or elected delegates depending on the mode of primary to be adopted eventually after all stakeholders have arrived at a consensus. The APC is a progressive party and will not restrict the democratic field to any section of the state.

“We therefore call on fifth columnists to desist from causing confusion in the party. If anyone chooses to be a member of the APC in Anambra State, he or she should imbibe the ethos of the party. Candidates of the party at all levels are chosen by the people from across the state, therefore we call on those aspiring for any elective post to work hard towards gaining the acceptance of the party members when the time comes instead of focusing on the distracting argument of zoning, which is alien to the APC. “
