PDP governors to meet on Wednesday over zoning of NWC positions

Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have scheduled a meeting on Wednesday to discuss the issues affecting the party. 

TheCable learnt that the deliberation will be centred on the contentious issue of zoning of national offices ahead of the national convention in October.

Ifeanyi Ugwanyi, governor of Enugu and chairman of the zoning committee, after a meeting last Thursday, said a decision has not been reached on the zoning arrangement.

The governor also said the committee has no mandate to zone the offices of the president and vice-president of Nigeria.


The zoning of the national offices is said to be critical because it will determine where the offices of the president and the vice-president are eventually zoned to.

Some of the sub-committees of the national convention organising committee (NCOC) are scheduled to meet on Tuesday.

The committees include that of transportation and contact and mobilisation — chaired by Ibrahim Dankwambo, former governor of Gombe state, and Ndudi Elumelu, minority leader of the house of representatives.
