Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, has dismissed a report that some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had secretly zoned its national offices.
A statement from Mr Uche Anichukwu, the Special Adviser (Media) to Ekweremadu, in Abuja on Friday quotes Ekweremadu as saying that the report was the sheer illusion of the authors of confusion, who did not wish the party well.
The senate deputy leader also said that the authors were scared of PDP’s steady resurgence after losing the 2015 general elections.
“There is, so far, no meeting, secret or open, where all or a few PDP party leaders met to zone the National Working Committee (NWC) offices of the party.
“The PDP’s constitution is clear on how the party can arrive at a zoning formula.
“Besides, it should be clear to all that the days of any form of impunity and underhandedness within Africa’s biggest party are gone.”
Ekweremadu said that the party leadership was committed to returning fully to its founding principles and philosophies.
“Therefore, there can never be any secret zoning of PDP’s NWC positions or any other office for that matter.
“Such exists only in propaganda rooms and imaginations of those who are afraid that we are steadily reinforcing, reforming, and coming back stronger to give the nation a more purposeful leadership.”
He urged Nigerians to disregard the report, adding that the party would soon convene a meeting of stakeholders and party organs to come up with its zoning formula in a transparent, democratic and fair manner.
