The APC northeast vice-chairman, Mustapha Salihu, has asked the Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Raji Fashola to produce evidence backing his claim that there is zoning in the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Salihu stated this while reacting to Fashola’s call for the leadership of the APC to respect and honour the agreement reached at the formative stage of the party for zoning to take place.

Reacting to Fashola’s statement, Salihu asked Fashola to explain the quarters where it was done and the parties to the unwritten agreement.
