The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has allocated its National Chairman slot to the Northern region of Nigeria.

According to some political commentators, the action by itself confirms the party zoning the 2023 presidency to the southern region.

Chairman of the Zoning Committee and Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi made the announcement on Thursday September 30.

Noting that the mandate of his committee did not include zoning of the office of President and Vice President, Ugwuanyi added that the National Working Committee (NWC) positions currently being held would be swapped between the North and the South.

This is coming after PDP Governors’ Forum held a meeting on Wednesday night, with nine governors voting in favour of the position of National Chairman going to the South. It was also gathered that three Governors backed move for it to go to the North.
