“That is not what we’re concerned with now. What we’re involved with is information assortment. Learn how to acquire knowledge without making errors.

“We’re not going to be pressurized by sentiments and then we do the flawed thing.

“Let me say that zoning will not be for the Caretaker Committee alone. It has to do with the President, it has to do with other major stakeholders, it has to do with a lot of people.

“I want to mute the speculation. The list is not from us ( Caretaker Committee). There is no way such a decision will be taken without consulting with the President, consulting with the governors and other major stakeholders.

“Folks should disregard the list. We’re centred on delivering our mandate and we’re to do it right”
