Ahead of the 2023 governorship election in Enugu State, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has zoned the ticket to the East Senatorial zone of the state.
The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the party in the state, Dr. Ben Nwoye, disclosed this in Enugu on Thursday during a meeting between the membership registration and revalidation Committee for the State and stakeholders of the party.
Speaking at the meeting, Nwoye said the reason for the action is in the interest of fairness, justice, and equity, adding that it is in line with the existing zoning arrangement in the state.
Those present at the meeting include committee members, party chieftains such as the Director-General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has blamed the behaviour of some Nigerians for the decision of Twitter to snub the country and choose Ghana as its African headquarters.
Mohammed on Thursday during a chat with newsmen in Abuja said there is no way you devalue what you have and then expect others to embrace it.
He said while Twitter reserves the full right to choose any destination to cite its business, it remains clear that the decision of the social networking giants is not a commercial or business decision.
The minister added that he hopes Twitter’s decision will serve as a lesson to Nigerians who have the habit of projecting the negative image of the country on social media.
