The zoning of the speaker and Deputy Senate President, according to sources is expected to be resolved today or possibly tomorrow by the party hierarchy.

The party NWC had reportedly favoured the Southwest Zone for the office of speaker a decision that subsequently generated controversy as leaders from the Northeast were believed to have also claimed the position besides the office of Deputy Senate President that was reportedly also zoned to the zone.

However, gladiators within the Northeast were yesterday reported to be canvassing the allocation of the DSP position to the Bauchi/Gombe axis in the region given the claim that other states in the region had been satisfied with other positions.
