It is easier to win an election than manage the spoils of the victory. That is the reality. Leaders of the APC on Thursday failed to reach a decision on the zoning of juicy political offices at the national level.
They met at the Rivers State Governors’ Lodge at Asokoro, Abuja all through Wednesday night and the early hours of Thursday in a charged atmosphere.
A leader of the party said, “We have to be careful in dealing with such sensitive issues because we must carry everybody along to eliminate the possibility of having aggrieved members who could be used by our opponents.”
They felt more consultations were needed before a final decision could be taken on position sharing.
A highly placed member of the party, who spoke to Punch about the meeting, had this to said:
APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, was mandated to meet with the serving and elected lawmakers of the party to feel their pulse on the zoning of the principal offices in the National Assembly.
