Abuja - The hope of some National Working Committee (NWC) members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of returning after the May 21 National Convention of the party might have been dashed by the proposal made by Governor Emmanuel Udom-led committee for the zoning of the national offices.
Prominent among those who may lose their positions are the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh and the party’s National Women Leader, Kema Chikwe.
The committee has zoned the National Chairmanship position to North- east, Deputy National Chairman to South-south while the South-west still retains the position of National Secretary.

The post of National Publicity Secretary, which was zoned to South-east in 2012, now goes to South-west while that of National Woman Leader goes to North-west as against South-east.
The office of National Treasurer which has been in North-east since 2012 has been zoned to North-central while South-east is expected to produce the National Organising Secretary position, which is currently in North-west.
The recommendation is, however, subject to ratification by various organs of the party.
