At the 95th National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) held on the 16th day of March, 2022, the party resolved that a 37 man committee be set up to determine the zoning of elective positions within the party.
Every loyal party man would be expected to adhere to the communique released by the NEC regarding the constitution of the 37 man committee before moving to pick nomination form.
However, in the case of the former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the directive of the National Executive Council was not recognized.
Surprisingly, in less than 48 hours of the communique, the former Vice President picked nomination form to run for the office of Nigeria’s President, without waiting for the outcome of the zoning committee as set up during the NEC meeting which he also attended.
I therefore ask:
Why couldn’t he wait for the zoning committee to come up with their resolution before picking up the nomination form?
It is high time members of PDP began to look into issues that are capable of disorganizing the party.
I therefore, call on the National Leadership of the party to wade into this act and quickly made a statement that will bring an end to this.
PDP is the hope of Nigeria and Nigerians are ready to Re-New the nation.
