The South East leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has risen

from a crucial meeting in Umuahia, the Abia State Capital on matters of

grave concern to the zone rejecting entirely the alleged allocation of

8000 polling boots to the South East as against the 21,000 polling boots

allocated to the North by the Independent National Electoral commission

(INEC.)
Briefing newsmen at the end of the meeting at Government house, Umuahia,

the Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh said the zone

demands that the exercise be suspended forthwith as it is against the

spirit of unity and one Nigeria and a diservice to the zone.

He said the party leadership is worried about the recent announcement of

postings and promotions of officers in the police and requested the

Inspector General of Police with the Police Service Commission to revisit

the exercise with a view to balancing it in favour of the South East.

The PDP leadership also requested that the registration of voters exercise

be extended in areas having problems noting that officers and materials

for the exercise are inadequate.
The meeting commended President Goodluck Jonathan and the Minister of

Health, Prof Onyebuchi Chukwu for the efforts and measures the Federal

Government has taken in containing the Ebola scourge and identified with

the measures.
The leadership of the Party resolved to support President Jonathan who is

the leader of the PDP and joined millions of other Nigerians to call on

him to contest the 2015 election, pointing out that the country has

witnessed great transformation in the last 3 years.

The meeting was attended by the Governors of Ebonyi and Abia state, Deputy

Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, Minister for Health, Minister for

Aviation, All South East  States PDP Chairmen and  among other major PDP

stakeholders.
