The All Progressives Grand Alliance on Thursday said it had zoned the position of Anambra State governor in the 2021 election to Anambra South Senatorial District.
The party’s National Chairman, Dr Victor Oye, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists in Awka, the state capital.
The state governor, Willie Obiano, is from Anambra North, while his predecessor, Peter Obi, is from Anambra Central.
Oye said the party was conscious of the governorship zoning arrangement in the state, hence the reason the new Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Uche Okafor, who was inaugurated on Wednesday was picked from Anambra North where Obiano hails from.
“The decision to zone the position to the Northern part of the state arose from the simple fact that our party had earlier zoned the governorship position in 2021 to the south senatorial district,” the statement read in part.
