Tension appears to have gripped members of the People Democratic Party, PDP, as the party is set to announce its final decision on zoning in a critical stakeholders’ meeting today.
PDP will today hold an emergency National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting to ratify the recommendation of its zoning committee reached last week.
The party at the meeting will receive the report and recommendation of the Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi-led committee on zoning from the National Working Committee, NWC.
FirstNews had reported that PDP ceded the chairmanship of the party to the North Central and National Publicity Secretary office to the South-West, among others.
Sources said the party leaders have agreed to submit to the decision of the majority on moving the party forward.
Meanwhile, the camp of former Osun State governor and until recently, a frontline chairmanship aspirant, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, is not happy with the zoning arrangement as announced by the Ugwuanyi Committee.
Spokesperson of the PDP youth groups, Obianuju Ogoko said: “In the wake of the thundering displeasure over the recent overbearing influence of PDP governors by party members, we, the PDP youths and ambassadors of good governance, have taken up the responsibility of speaking to the issues that currently bedevil our party.
“It would appear that the expected voices of our elders who should provide a firm direction in times of conflict have grown weary.”
