The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has zoned its 2019 presidential ticket to the North.
Acting National chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, said this when he received the report of Senator Ike Ekweremadu’s Post Election Review Committee, noting that “the National Working Committee (NWC) has agreed to move this party forward.
“We will obey the principle of zoning and we have agreed in 2019, PDP presidential candidate will come from the North.
“NWC has agreed that we will never make mistake of the past. We will follow submission made by this committee.
“By the time it passes through all organs of the party we will implement the report to the later,” Secondus said.
He maintained that “today mark a turning point in our struggle in the last 16years. We are now well robust opposition. Our senators are in control of the National Assembly. We are the best organised party in the country,” he said.
He explained that the report is important to the party, adding that it will assist it to come up with a road map.
According to Secondus, some interest groups had tried to scuttle the committee, stressing that PDP NWC will review and implement the recommendations that are very urgent to it.
