The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has retained the party’s chairmanship position in the Northeast geopolitical zone for the next four years. The decision may have paved the way for the incumbent National Chairman, Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff, to retain the position.
He will be testing his popularity at the party’s national convention billed to hold in Port Harcourt on May 21. The decision was the outcome of the party’s Zoning Committee headed by Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel and was adopted at yesterday’s party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
Other party offices were zoned to the various geopolitical zones as follows: Deputy Chairman (South-South); National Secretary (South-West); National Legal Adviser (Northwest); National Treasurer (South-South); and National Financial Secretary (North-Central).
