The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC, Worldwide, has stated that 3 South-East Governors will lead a mass defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, if the party fails to zone its 2023 Presidential ticket to the region, Page 36 learnt.
The OYC said this in a statement signed by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, its President-General; Comrade Obinna Achionye, Deputy President-General; and Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, its Secretary-General, where it also described the proposed emergency meeting of the PDP Board of Trustees, BoT, scheduled for November 18, and the party’s National Executive Council, NEC, meeting coming up on November 19, as the last opportunity for the party to revert back to zoning, as enshrined in its constitution.
The OYC noted that the party’s zoning formula favours the South-East for the 2023 Presidency.
It warned that Igbo Politicians caught negotiating for the Vice President slot, will suffer stiff penalties and consequences.
“Failure of PDP BoT and NEC to stand down the NWC’s decision for an unconstitutional “open contest”, and revert back to zoning formula, will inevitably lead to collapse of PDP machinery in South-East, as three Igbo Governors will lead Igbos into mass defection from PDP to APC. This is the final warning to PDP”, the OYC threantened.
