The quest by former Osun state governor, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, to develop into the subsequent nationwide chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Thursday, got here to an finish following the zoning of the workplace to the North by the get together.

Reading out the communique to journalists on the finish of its assembly which lasted a number of hours, chairman of the PDP zoning committee and governor of Enugu state, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi stated workplaces hitherto held by Southerners would go the best way of Northerners and vice versa.

This he famous, is in compliance with the get together’s constitutional provision within the spirit of equity, justice and fairness. 

“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. 

“Consequently, the current offices being held by officers in the Southern zones of the country, namely, South-West, South-East and South-South zones , should swap places with the offices currently in the Northern zones of Nigeria, namely, North-West, North-East and North-Central zones,” he stated.

For the umpteenth time, Ugwuanyi informed newsmen 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.”

He continued: “Zoning of offices in PDP has traditionally been between the North and South of Nigeria. 

“We shall pass on our recommendations to the National Executive Committee, NEC of the Party through the National Working Committee of the party.”

With this growth, the North is predicted to provide the nationwide treasurer, nationwide girl chief, nationwide organizing secretary, nationwide authorized adviser and nationwide youth chief whereas the workplaces of the nationwide secretary,  nationwide publicity secretary,  nationwide monetary secretary, nationwide auditor and nationwide girl chief go the best way of the South on the October thirty first nationwide conference.

Although the committee distanced itself from permutations pertaining the zoning of nationwide executives in 2023, the Presidential ambitions of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Governor Aminu Tambuwal (Sokoto), Bala Mohammed (Bauchi) and Bukola Saraki seem removed from over.

And opposite to insinuations {that a} Southerner is now favoured to fly the get together’s Presidential flag, the get together seems set to throw the race open to each the South and the North in keeping with the advice of the Bala Mohammed committee on the evaluation of the efficiency of the PDP within the 2019 Presidential election.

The assembly was attended by the deputy chairman of the committee and governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, deputy governor of Zamfara state and secretary of the committee, Aliyu Mahdi, ex-Senate Presidents, Anyim Pius Anyim and David Mark amongst others.
