The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has zoned the position of National Chairman to the North.

The Chairman of the Zoning Committee and Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, announced this on Thursday afternoon.

Ugwuanyi said National Working Committee (NWC) positions currently being held would be swapped between the North and the South.

He said the mandate of his committee did not include zoning of the office President and Vice President.

The decision came after a meeting of PDP Governors’ Forum held on Wednesday night where nine governors were said to have voted in favour of the position of National Chairman going to the South against three that backed the North.
