Official: PDP Zones Chairmanship To Northeast by maupe: 8:10pm On Apr 28, 2016
*Party woos aggrieved members

Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja

After weeks of controversy and intriguing battle for the soul of the Peoples Democratic Party, the party’s National Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday finally affirmed the zoning of the chairmanship position to the North-East.

But the atmosphere at the poorly attended NEC meeting painted a picture that all may not be well with the opposition party after all. Most of those who spoke at the opening of the NEC meeting were all calling for truce and for those who may have disagreed with the decisions reached at the NEC meeting to sheathe their sword and remain in the party.

Speaking to journalists on the outcome of the meeting, the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff said that the NEC has approved the report of the zoning and convention committees.

Regarding the highly contested chairmanship position, Sheriff said that the seat has been zoned to the North-East by the NEC without any dissenting voice.

“The NEC meeting has adopted the report of the zoning committee 100% without any dissenting voice. It approved the zoning of the post of e National Chairman to the North East,” he said.

Sheriff said that the party’s NEC will meet again on the May 11 to approve proposals for constitutional amendments ahead of the national convention

According to the report of the zoning committee, the South West is to retaining the position of the National Secretary while the National Organizing Secretary and Youth Leader is to be produced by (South East). Similarly the committee zoned the Deputy National Chairman South back to the South-South.

When asked whether he will be contesting for the chairmanship position at the May convention, Sheriff said:”The issue is a personal decision for me and when I make up my mind on it I will let you know”.

Earlier, Sheriff had expressed satisfaction over the recent outing of the party during a rally in Jigawa state, describing it as a sign of things to come.

Very good. Nice work. Now the path is clear for either Ekweremadu to become President, or for Jonathan to return. Any SW loser that wants to defect, is free to do as he pleases. Just don't come back begging. You can go and join either SDP, Accord or KOWA, or better you can go and commit political suicide in APC. We don't care and we don't need you.

The person above the person above me is still bitter about 2015 lost...
For the records, no vacancy in Aso rock.. GEJ is a good man, but not a leader, so he's out of the equation, or bring him in, and APC will win sitting at home...
Ekweremadu is a gooner, because he's be kicked out with his master soon...
Politics of hatred and bitterness will lead some people nowhere...

[b] These people have just given APC the rocket launcher to blow them out of existence come 2019. How foolish can these people get? The SW PDP they just discarded now are those that managed to almost tie the votes GEJ got in 2015 with Buhari. Now that there won't be anybody to campaign for them here in the SW, what then is the point?

In 2019 when the election comes, let's break down how the public voting based on the mindset of each zone will be when a Northern Presidential aspirant comes forth from the PDP:

North; It is well known that no northern politician alive today can match the popularity of Buhari. So please tell me who in the pdp will have the liver and power to confront him in the North when votes and public charisma is involved? Buhari at worst will definitely score 75% of all the votes in the north. Meaning APC wins, PDP loses

South East; They have been clamoring for an Igbo presidency, and they heavily campaigned against the North during the last election. Will they suddenly turn around and start singing praises of another Northern candidate just because he's from the PDP? Bear in mind that the actions of the Fulani herds men of late does not favour anybody from the north in the SE. Though I predict a narrow win for the PDP, expect a very low turn out of voters because nobody would care about any of the APC and PDP candidates. While this is a win for the PDP, it might not be a win on the long run because overall numbers will matter.

South South; the general mindset is also going to go almost the same way of the South East, though there might be more voters turn out in favour of the PDP here. Overall, numbers will still not be enough to guarantee anything.

South West; Now this is going to be the funniest of all. PDP having just lost their political structure in the Southwest, who will campaign for them when the elections come? The public perception of PDP in the SW is at an all time low, and tonight has just made it even lower. Does anybody think Yoruba people will stand and watch some people from other zones come to tell them to vote for people who couldn't carry their indigent important politicians along when they were working the shenanigans of their political structure? Very laughable. With nobody of value to campaign for them, even KOWA will win more votes than PDP. APC will sweep almost all the votes here.


So in summary, I don't see how PDP hopes to make any serious impact in the next election. They have shot themselves in the foot and it will not heal in another 7 years to come. CONGRATS APC FOR WINNING THE NEXT ELECTION!

The South West should not feel cheated by the PDP zoning of its chairmanship to North East.
PDP gave them 8 solid years of Presidency under Obasanjo!
For me, PDP should zone the Senate Presidency to South South.
If PDP can woo someone like Kwankwaso with the 2019 ticket, he will pull great votes in the North together with Block SE+SS and Ekiti .

LMAOOOOOO....... Tell me, which Northerner would vote for GEJ and Ekeremadu? grin Are you still relying on the presidency PDP zoned to the North?
As a matter of fact, don't expect Yorubas to vote for the dead party.

I'm telling y'all now because in 2019, we don't want you weeping on social media about how Yorubas betrayed you. Listen and listen hard, SW and SE are not political allies. Don't expect to get our votes.

Should Yorubas join and reform Kowa, KOWA will win. We're just politically intelligent like that. Don't touch thy annointed grin

This move is definitely going to be the game changer for the PDP. The simple object is to whittle down the popularity of the APC in the North. The seat obviously is Sheriff's to keep. He has done so much in the short time he has spent in office. This move should be followed by propitiatory steps to placate aggrieved members. The 2019 presidential election is going to be an epic battle in the north.
