PDP zoning: North gets 11 slots, South 10

Ahead of its National Convention slated for August 17, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday zoned 11 slots to the North aside the presidential position while South got 10 slots.
The zoning arrange­ment was part of the report presented by the zoning committee headed by Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi to the party’s National Caretaker Com­mittee led by Ahmed Ma­karfi.
The positions zoned to the North are: Deputy National Chairman 2, 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.

The Southern zone got the positions of Na­tional Chairman, Dep­uty National Chairman 1, Na-tional Treasurer, National Legal Adviser, National Youth Leader, National Organising Secretary, Deputy Na­tional Publicity Secre­tary, Deputy National Woman Leader, Deputy National Auditor, Dep­uty National Financial Secretary.
The report of the zon­ing committee presented by Umahi said: “All posi­tions should be keenly contested for among the major zones they are zoned to in order to open the space and allow for full participation of members.
“That the chairman­ship of the party be zoned to the southern zones bearing in mind that the pres-idential ticket of the party for 2019 was zoned to the northern zones as approved by the National Convention in Port Har­court.
Narrating the origin of the zoning committee, Gov Umahi said, “Pur­suant to Section 2 (d) and (e) on the preamble of the PDP Constitution (as Amended in 2012) regarding equitable dis­tribution of offices across the wards, local govern­ment areas, states and zones of the federation, the ex-panded national caucus of the party held on the 14th of July, 2016 at Yar’Adua Centre, Abu­ja, mandated the National Caretaker Committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi to constitute a zoning committee to zone the positions ahead of the forthcoming Na­tional Convention slated for Wednesday, August 17 2016 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
