Fayose insists South-West must produce the next PDP boss

25 August 2015, 11:13

Ado Ekiti - Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has rejected the zoning of the position of the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the North-East, reports Punch.

The governor noted that it was the turn of the South-West zone to produce the Chairman since the presidency would be zoned to the North in the 2019 general elections.

Fayose made his position known when a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Mohammed, paid him a visit  to consult with him on his ambition to become the National Chairman of the PDP.

He stated since the South-West and the South-South have taken their turns to produce  presidents, the north should automatically produce the next presidential candidate of the party.

He said since the north is going to produce the next presidential candidate, the South-West should produce the National Chairman of the party.

He, however, declared that the time was not right for the party to have a substantive Chairman..

The PDP has already promised to retain the chairmanship of the party in the North-East, the zone that produced the former Chairman of the party, Adamu Mu'azu.
