The All Progressive Congress Party seem divided as the North Central caucus of the party insists on producing the Speaker of the 9th House of Representatives.
Reports gathered the move is generating fear as five serving governors on the platform of the All Progressive Congress have reportedly thrown their weight behind the decision, four of the governors are from the North Central zone while the fifth is from the South West.
If unresolved, the implication of the development means the current leader of the House and frontline aspirant for the Speaker in the House of Representative, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila’s chances may be affected in what sources described as proxy battle against him.
Curiously, the defiant move by the governors and the North Central caucus of the APC is coming amid plans by the opposition people’s Democratic Party to work against any anointed candidate of the APC leadership
According to a member of the APC National Working Committee, who pleaded anonymity, the plot of the five governors had leaked to the leadership of the party and that informed the reason the party’s spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu clarified that the position of the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole on the zoning of the Speakership was just a guide and not the final position of the party.
