PDP throws position of national Chairman open to the South

Contrary to expectations that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will zone the position of its national chairman to a particular geopolitical zone, its Zoning Committee has thrown the contest open to the entire Southern part of the country.

The zoning committee of the PDP revealed this on Tuesday as it releases the zoning arrangement for various party offices.

The committee, in a report presented by its chairman, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, to the National Caretaker Committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi, the position of National Chairman was zoned to the south, comprising the Southwest, Southeast and the South-south while the North takes the position of National Secretary.

The party will also have two Deputy National Chairman, one for the North and one for the South.

The committee also zoned the following positions to the South: National Treasurer, National Legal Adviser, National Youth Leader, National Organising Secretary, Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Deputy National Woman Leader, Deputy National Auditor and Deputy National Financial Secretary.

The the three geopolitical zones in the North are to produce National Secretary, National Financial Secretary, National Publicity Secretary, National Auditor, National Woman Leader, Deputy National Treasurer, Deputy National Organising Secretary, Deputy National Youth Leader, Deputy National Legal Adviser and Deputy National Secretary.

Additionally, each of the six geopolitical zones is to present a National Vice Chairman who will be part of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

Governor Umahi said: “As a guide, the committee considered earlier zoning arrangements in the party since its inception to date, and equally examined previous happenings in the party in respect of restrictions to equal participation of members.”
