PDP Zones Chairmanship to South


Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi’s Committee on zoning of offices in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) completed its work on Tuesday.
The Committee released the zoning arrangements of the 21 available
positions between the North and the South.
The South is to produce the next chairman of the party.
The report, which was presented by Umahi, who headed the Zoning
Committee, to the party National Caretaker Committee, led by Ahmed
Makarfi, in Abuja, Tuesday, revealed that the positions zoned to the
North are: Deputy National Chairman 2, National Secretary, National
Financial Secretary, National Publicity Secretary, National Auditor
and National Woman Leader.
Others include: Deputy National Treasurer, Deputy National Organising
Secretary, Deputy National Youth Leader, Deputy National Legal Adviser
and Deputy National Secretary.
The South got the positions of National Chairman, Deputy National
Chairman 1, National Treasurer, National Legal Adviser, National Youth
Leader and National Organising Secretary.
National Publicity Secretary, Deputy National Woman Leader, Deputy
National Auditor and Deputy National Financial Secretary, were also
zoned to the South.
Umahi, while presenting his report, said: “After robust deliberations
on proposals presented by members, the committee proposed that all
positions should be keenly contested for among the major zones they
are zoned to.
“This will open the space and allow for full participation of members.
“That the chairmanship of the party be zoned to the Southern zone
bearing in mind that the presidential ticket of the party for 2019 was
zoned to the Northern zone.
“This is as was approved by the National Convention in Port Harcourt,
Rivers on Saturday, May 21, 2016.”
In his remarks, Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Ben Obi, who
received the report on behalf of the chairman, commended the committee
for timely completion of their assignment.
He noted that even though the zoning committee was given seven days to
submit its report, the report was submitted before the expiration of
the one week given.
“This is the new spirit in PDP. When you want to re-brand, your action
must speak louder than your voice.
“We assure that justice will be done to the submission, and at the end
of the day, you will be happy that you’ve done for the party and for
your country a good job.’’
