The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said, the decision on zoning at the State level is the prerogative of the State.
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan;
“The attention of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP has been drawn to conflicting reports regarding its position on issues relating to the coming Anambra state governorship election.
“For the avoidance of doubts, the NWC wishes to state that any decision on zoning of elective offices at the state level remains the exclusive preserve of the State chapter as such falls under its regulatory purview and administrative prerogative as prescribed by the Constitution of the PDP
“The NWC notes that Section 24(2) of the PDP Constitution is clear on the functions of the state chapters in party administration including identifying and resolving political, social and economic issues of concern in states.
“Our party also holds that it recognizes the current chairman of the Anambra state chapter as well as the structure of the party in the state.
“The NWC therefore urges all stakeholders in Anambra state to continue to work harmoniously for the overall success of our party in the state.”
