Mr. Umahi, while presenting his report, said: “After robust deliberations on proposals presented by members, the committee proposed that all positions should be keenly contested for among the major zones they are zoned to.

“This will open the space and allow for full participation of members.


“That the chairmanship of the party be zoned to the Southern zone bearing in mind that the presidential ticket of the party for 2019 was zoned to the Northern zone.

“This is as was approved by the National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers on Saturday, May 21, 2016.”
In his remarks, Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Ben Obi, who received the report on behalf of the chairman, commended the committee for timely completion of their assignment.

He noted that even though the zoning committee was given seven days to submit its report, the report was submitted before the expiration of the one week given.
“This is the new spirit in PDP. When you want to re-brand, your action must speak louder than your voice.
“We assure that justice will be done to the submission, and at the end of the day, you will be happy that you’ve done for the party and for your country a good job.’’
