Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South East geo-political zone has aligned with the position of the Southern Governors’ Forum that the next president should come from the south.

The PDP South East also directed that the existing zoning patterns in states and constituencies of the zone must be strictly observed and adhered to in every state and constituency.

Briefing newsmen after a Zonal Executive Committee meeting of the PDP, in Enugu, and attended by the leader of the party in the South East and Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, his Abia State counterpart, Okezie Ikpeazu, the National Secretary of the party, Sam Anyanwu, members of the state and national assemblies, members of PDP National Executive Committee, Board of Trustees members, among others, the National Vice Chairman (South East), Ali Odefa, disclosed it was unanimously agreed that the PDP should zone the presidency to the southern part of the country ahead of the party primaries.

Odefa said the PDP South East stands with the resolution of the Southern Governors’ Forum “that the office of the presidency should be zoned to the southern part of Nigeria.”

On the issue of zoning at the state and constituency levels in the zone, the PDP national vice chairman said: “We said where there are zoning patterns, they must be strictly observed and adhered to in every state and constituency.

“We also went ahead to make interventions for our members who are holding political and elective positions in Anambra State who didn’t defect to other political parties in the time of the election, but stood by the party (PDP) in times of bad weather, that they should be given support to return to their various offices.”

He, therefore, revealed that the zonal leadership of the party will make a presentation to the National Working Committee for assistance in that regard.
