Yenogoa - Attempts by some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State to zone electoral offices in the state is causing tension among party members, reports The Nation.
While some members of the party are in support of the decision of the leaders, others are vehemently opposing them.
The new arrangement being proposed by the leaders will prevent some lawmakers from returning to their seats in 2015.
Charles Dorg, the state’s PDP pioneer chairman , said the political leaders decided to zone the National Assembly seats in the interest of peace and harmony.
Supporters of the lawmakers have, however, registered their displeasure with the decision.
To show their displeasure, they walked out of the rally organised to endorse President Goodluck Jonathan for 2015 and Governor Seriake Dickson for 2016.
