No Secret Zoning of NWC offices In PDP-Ekweremadu

Listen to article

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

leadership. ý
“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.
