PDP Postpones NEC Meeting

 

Breaking: PDP Shun Zoning, Make Presidential Ticket Open

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced the postponement of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.

Naija News reports that the meeting originally scheduled to hold today has been postponed to Wednesday, March 16.

This was made known by the PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba.

Speaking to newsmen on Monday night, Ologunagba said: “The National Caucus meeting is adjourned to continue on Wednesday. The Board of Trustees (BoT) Meeting and NEC meeting will now be held on Wednesday, March 16.”

It was gathered that the NEC meeting was reportedly postponed over the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2023 elections and the manifesto drafting committee.

Naija News reports that the main opposition party is currently divided over the zone that gets its presidential ticket.

With some stakeholders urging the party to zone its ticket to the South, others are of the opinion that zoning is unconstitutional and the North should also be given a shot at the presidential ticket.

This is reportedly causing crisis in the party as bigwigs of the party are plotting to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Those looking to grab the PDP’s ticket include, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar,  Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, former Senate President Bukola Saraki, Governor Nyesom Wike, Chief Dele Momodu and former Anambra Governor Peter Obi.
