For example, the PDP in Oyo State said the senate presidency should be zoned to the South-West if the party won the presidential election.“Also, we want the economy to be fixed because it has been terribly damaged by the APC government. We want the Ibadan Airport to be upgraded to international standard and an inland dry port in order to decongest the sea port. The Ibadan – Oyo – Ogbomoso Expressway is a very strategic road and should be completed quickly. I believe Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will do all these and more if he wins the presidency. The agitations for secession by various groups will end with good governance and justice. This is what the PDP will do.”

This followed the emergence of a former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress. Sources close to the party and its presidential candidate said the emergence of Tinubu, being an influential politician from the South-West, had changed the dynamics of the party’s preparation as regards how to win votes from the zone. “Except Ebonyi State, other delegates from Anambra, Abia, Enugu and Imo States and their sponsors need to explain to ndi igbo who they sold their votes to and at what cost at the expense of our collective interest of producing the President of Nigeria in 2023. The North-West, the only geopolitical zone with seven states, has the highest number of registered voters in the country, followed by the South-West, which has Ekiti, Lagos, Ondo, Ogun, Osun and Oyo states. In the communique issued after the reception, they said Prof. Meanwhile, some party chieftains in the South-West are demanding fair consideration from the party and Atiku as an incentive for the region. Nwekeaku appealed to Igbos to remain calm as the forum was studying the development, and would, “certainly, take decisive actions against those betrayals and opportunists, no matter their position and caliber, to serve as a deterrent for those who are still plotting to betray the Igbos in the planned 2023 general elections. They said this was important for the PDP to be able to compete favourably with Tinubu in the region. “Nigeria’s HCD programme was launched in March 2018 by the National Economic Council.
They said if the party wins the February 25, 2023 presidential election, certain positions should be zoned to the region. “It is equally important for INEC to resume the online registration in order to decongest the already overcrowded registration centers, thus facilitating the registration of more Nigerians to participate In the democratic process of electing their leaders as it is generally believed that the application of the electronic transmission of votes as contains in the 2022 Electoral Act would make citizens’ votes count in determining the electoral victory in the country. “As a result, we welcome the presidential candidate of APGA, a jurist and former Chief Justice of Anambra State, Prof. For example, the PDP in Oyo State said the senate presidency should be zoned to the South-West if the party won the presidential election.

We want the roads to be fixed, let there be provision of infrastructure and creation of state police to assist in tackling insecurity. “Also, we want the economy to be fixed because it has been terribly damaged by the APC government. “As a former Chief Judge of Anambra State, Prof. We want the Ibadan Airport to be upgraded to international standard and an inland dry port in order to decongest the sea port. The Ibadan – Oyo – Ogbomoso Expressway is a very strategic road and should be completed quickly. I believe Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will do all these and more if he wins the presidency. Umeadi’s antecedents potrayed him as a detribalised Nigerian with admirers from all parts of Nigeria and therefore will enable him secure votes from the Northern and Southern parts of the country.
The agitations for secession by various groups will end with good governance and justice. This is what the PDP will do.” In Ogun State, the party said it would negotiate for juicy slots once the party wins. He said, “Nigeria needs people like Professor, someone who will be the mouthpiece of the masses. The publicity secretary of the party in the state, Bankole Akinloye, in an interview with one of our correspondents in Abeokuta on Friday, said the state chapter would work for the success of the party at the poll before demanding its slots. He said “For Ogun State PDP, what is paramount to us is the success of the party in the election.
It is when a hunter kills an animal while hunting that he can start thinking of sharing the meat.” Responding, Prof. What we will request for as a party will be after election. Definitely, we have ministerial appointments that will come to the state. We have ambassadorial appointments that would also be demanded for and several other juicy appointments. You came out in your numbers to support me.” In Ondo State, the publicity secretary, Mr Kennedy Peretei, in a telephone interview with Saturday PUNCH said, “The PDP has a tradition of balancing government and party positions among the six geopolitical zones.
That is, National Chairman of the party, President, Vice-President, Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Secretary to the Government of the Federation. Each zone will certainly pick one of the positions. I was the longest serving Chief Judge and afterwards, I became a lecturer from there, I joined APGA and today I am the presidential candidate of the party. So, the South-West is already factored into the equation. No zone will be shortchanged.” On the specific position that might be zoned to the South-West, Peretei said the region might get the position of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or the SGF or the party’s national chairman.

“Any of the three can be achieved based on personalities and other factors determined by leaders of the party,” he added. In Osun State, efforts to reach the acting chairman, Dr Akintunde Adekunle, for comment proved futile as he was said to be engaged in the governorship campaign of the party’s candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke. Also, two members of the party’s Board of Trustees that were contacted declined comment. Your support means that Daily Trust can keep offering journalism to everyone in the world. But the immediate past Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Diran Odeyemi, in an interview with one of our correspondents, said the party should zone the position of the national chairman to the South-West. Odeyemi said the party might not be able to woo voters in the South-West because the ruling APC has a Yoruba man as its candidate unless a major party post was given to the region.
He added, “We have been saying it. Let the PDP give the South-West the post of National Chairman. We are already being boxed to a corner because APC has a Yoruba man as its presidential candidate.” In Ekiti State, the acting Chairman, Mr Lanre Omolase, gave an assurance that none of the six geo-political zones would lose out of key political positions if the party won the 2023 presidential election. He said even though this was purely a task for the National Working Committee, he was sure no region would be left out.
He added, “We are targeting the national chairman of the party when the party wins because definitely the chairman will rotate to the South. Since the South-South has taken the vice-president’s slot, then it automatically becomes the responsibility of the party to give the national chairman to the South-West. Omolase said there were other political positions, including the Secretary to Government of the Federation, the Senate President, House of Representatives Speaker, adding that what the South-West would ask for would depend on them. The state publicity secretary, Raphael Adeyanju, said the party knew how to handle the situation without any zone being left out. Adeyanju said, “Our leaders know how to go about it.
There are other positions that can be given to the South-West which is okay. We are not unaware that people are looking up to us to pacify the South-West, especially now that the presidential candidate of our major opponent is from the South-West. Related News .
