2023: PDP Zoning Committee Locked In Crucial Meeting

Gov. Samuel Otorm of Benue State

The zoning committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is presently locked in a crucial meeting over which side of the country should produce the presidential candidate of the party.

The meeting, which is taking place at the Benue state governor’s lodge, Abuja, is said to be presided over by the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom.

Presidential aspirants of the party have been courting Ortom in recent times.

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State; Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto; former Senate President Bukola Saraki, all visited Ortom.

The above politicians are all seeking the presidential ticket of the opposition party.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP after its last meeting recommended the composition of a 37-member Zoning Committee to look into the vexed issue threatening to polarise members of the party.

The committee was inaugurated by the National Chairman of the party, Dr Iyorchia Ayu last Thursday, with a charge to put the unity of the party and quest to win the presidential election upper most in their minds.
