2019: South-East PDP supports zoning of Presidency to North
The Peoples Democratic Party in the South-East on Monday endorsed the party’s zoning arrangement, which zoned the office of the President to the North.
The decision was taken at the PDP South-East Zonal Executive Committee meeting in Enugu.
South-East PDP equally backed the zoning of the office of the party’s national chairman to the South.
In a communique released after the meeting, PDP Vice Chairman, South-East, Chief Austin Umahi, the South-East PDP reiterated its “commitment to national unity” and also “reaffirmed the party’s earlier agreement on the zoning of party positions allotted to the South-East in respect of the forthcoming elective national convention.”
In the same vein, PDP governors and National Assembly members from the zone were mandated to liaise with the other geopolitical zones in the country to reach an understanding towards the emergence of the party’s next national chairman.
Umahi also disclosed that the zonal leadership of the party would support its governorship candidate in Anambra State, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, and his running mate, Mrs. Chidi Onyemelukwe, in the November gubernatorial election in the state.Punch
