PDP Zones Chairmanship Position to the North

The Peoples Democratic Party has zoned the national chairman’s office to the North.

The party has not announced its decision on presidency, vice presidency or other executive and legislative positions.

Reports say these offices are outside the terms of reference of the National Convention Zoning Committee.


The committee had recommended the swapping of party leadership positions between the North and the South.


Towards this end, all positions currently being occupied by northern party members will go south; and those in the south will go to northerners.

This was announced by the chairman of the committee and Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, in Abuja on Thursday.

Ugwuanyi said, “At the end of the deliberations of the PDP National Zoning Committee , it was resolved as follows:


“The National Zoning Committee of the PDP was given the mandate to zone national offices to be contested by all PDP members at the PDP National Convention scheduled for October 30/31 2021 by the National Executive Committee.


“That the mandate of the committee does not include zoning of the offices of the president, vice president and other executive and legislative offices of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.


“And the decision of the committee to zone the party offices does not in any way affect the executive and legislative offices in Nigeria.


“That zoning of offices in PDP has traditionally been between the North and South of Nigeria.


“The decision of the PDP Zoning Committee is in line with the constitution of the party on zoning and rotation of party and national offices in the interest of justice, equity and fairness. “
