No Secret Zoning of NWC offices In PDP-Ekweremadu
Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has denied any tension within the
opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over alleged secret zoning of
national offices of the party by some of its leaders.
In a statement on Friday by his special adviser on mediaý, Uche Anichukwu,
Ekweremadu said such report in the media was sheer illusion of authors of
confusion, people who did not wish the party well and were scared of PDP's
steady resurgence after its defeat at the 2015 general elections.
The lawmaker urged Nigerians to disregard the report, describing it as
baseless and untrue.
The statement read: “There is so far, no meeting, secret or open, where
all or a few PDP party leaders met to zone the National Working Committee
(NWC) offices of the party. The PDP's constitution is clear on how the
party can arrive at a zoning formula.
“Besides, it should be clear to all that the days of any form of impunity
and underhandedness within Africa's biggest party are gone. We are
committed to returning fully to the founding principles and philosophies
of the PDP.
“Therefore, there can never be any secret zoning of PDP's NWC positions or
any other office for that matter. Such exists only in propaganda rooms and
imaginations of those who are afraid that we are steadily reinforcing,
reforming, and coming back stronger to give the nation a more purposeful
“The PDP will soon convene a meeting of the relevant stakeholders and
organs of the party as stipulated by our constitution to come up with a
clear zoning of the national offices of the party in a transparent,
democratic, and fair manner,” he added.
