The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Southwest has said it did not micro-zone the position of the national chairmanship of the party to any state in the zone.

In a statement by the National Vice Chairman, Southwest, Dr Eddy Olafeso, on Monday, said the party had not dissuaded any aspirant from contesting the exalted position.

“Our attention has been drawn to insinuations making the rounds that the SOUTH WEST EXECUTIVE of the Party at its last meeting with Stakeholders in the Zone did direct that aspirants to the office of the National Chairman must come from a particular State. This is patently false as no such decision was taken, we only zoned other offices that was zoned to the South West amongst all the States in the region, and this action is traditional.

“The position of National Chairman and Deputy National Chairman is zoned to the entire South and as such is beyond the scope of the South West Zone to unilaterally adjudicate on, therefore we declare that all those gentlemen that have signified their intentions to contest for the above mentioned positions remain at liberty to continue to prosecute their ambitions without hindrance.

For the avoidance of doubt, it is important that we underscore the fact that we did not zone to any particular State or person the eligibility to contest the position of the National Chairman or Deputy National Chairman, all those aspiring possess the right to continue to ventilate their ambitions.”
