The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) zoning committee, Samuel Ortom, ended at the expiration of a two-week deadline, inconclusively in Abuja, on Tuesday.
Chairman of the committee who is also Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, made the announcement following a three-hour meeting. The committee was set up two weeks ago during the party’s 95th National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting, held on March 16, 2022.
The 37-member body was tasked with determining suitable zoning formula for all elective positions, particularly President, Senate President and House of Representatives Speaker.
The governor, who briefed journalists at the Benue State lodge, Asokoro, Abuja, said the meeting was peaceful without any tension.
THE party, however, suffered a setback as one of its Northern stalwarts, former Kano State governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, officially tendered his letter of resignation, yesterday, and joined the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
