PDP ratifies zoning party chairmanship to North 

PDP ratifies zoning party chairmanship to North

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday approved the zoning of the party’s next national chairman to the northern part of the country.

The party’s spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan disclosed this while addressing newsmen on the outcome of the NEC held in Abuja.

Mr Ologbondiyan said that the NEC considered and adopted Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi-led Zoning Committee’s report, ahead of the party’s national convention, scheduled for October 30.

The committee had recommended that the current elective National Working Committee (NWC) positions in the party should be swapped between the North and the South.

Mr Ologbondiyan, however, clarified that what was approved was not about the executive and legislative positions in the 2023 general elections, but the elective NWC positions for the forthcoming convention.

Asked if the date for the national convention was still sacrosanct, Mr Ologbondiyan said there was no contrary decision regarding the date of the convention during the meeting.

“So far, nothing has been said to alter the date of the convention, which is October 30, ” Mr Ologbondiyan said.

On when the aspirants would start obtaining forms, Mr Ologbondiyan said what was adopted was the recommendation of zoning between the North and the South.

He said that what was expected was for the regions to go and micro-zone the positions to the geopolitical zones, after which aspirants can start obtaining forms.

Mr Ologbondiyan, however, said that the report of the Governors Bala Mohammed committee on PDP performance in the last general elections would be considered in another meeting of the NEC.
