The National Executive Committee meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party is set to hold on Thursday (today).
Acting National Chairman of the party, Yemi Akinwonmi, had while receiving the report on behalf of the National Working Committee of the party on Tuesday, described today’s NEC meeting as “make or mar.”
The zoning panel had recommended that all party positions currently held by members of the party from the south be swapped with those held by members of the party from the north.
If NEC accepts this recommendation, the following national chairman of the party will emerge from the north.
Other positions, which will also go to the north, include National Treasurer, National Organising Secretary, and National Legal Adviser.
The south will produce the National Secretary, National Publicity Secretary and Auditor, among others.
There have been protests from party supporters working through several groups and urging NEC to scrap the committee’s recommendations.
Convener of one of such groups under the aegis of PDP Leaders Forum, Olusola Salau, asked NEC to reject the report because it was “self-serving and designed to shortchange the South West that has never produced a national chairman of the PDP since inception.”
