PDP Group Disagrees With Fayose On Party Chairmanship

A pressure group in the Peoples Democratic Party,
Restart PDP Project, has warned that a dangerous
precedent would be set in the party if it did not
elect a substantive chairman from the North-East to
replace the acting chairman.
The group insisted that the party's next chairman
must come from the North-East, the same zone
where the two previous chairmen hailed from.
Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State had recently
argued that since the North would produce the
party's presidential candidate in 2019, it would be a
waste of time to install a new chairman from the
North-East to complete the zone's tenure.
He, therefore, proposed that the next party
chairman should come from the South-West.
But the leader of the Restart PDP Project,
Emmanuel Nwosu in an interview on Thursday in
Abuja, insisted that the next party chairman should
come from the North-East in line with the PDP
He said, "Our position is that the next party
chairman must come from the North-East. There is
nothing other than that because that is the position
of our party constitution.
"If it doesn't happen, then there is a big danger for
the party because we are the party now in
opposition and Nigerians are watching to see what
kind of party we are.
"Remember that most of our party members have
condemned the impunity that reigned supreme in
the past. Many people are sad because of
imposition of candidates and all that".
Nwosu also called on President Muhammadu
Buhari to ensure that there was fairness in the
current anti-corruption war.

He said a situation where only members of the PDP
in the last administration were targeted in the anti-
graft war would not augur well for the country.
"It is quite clear that we have not seen any sign that
members of the governing party are interrogated.
It looks like up to this moment, it is only the PDP
members that are under the watch of the anti-graft

"We believe that for good governance, the current
government should do the needful and make sure
that its anti-corruption war is executed without fear
or favour", Nwosu stated.
Another member of the group, Mr. Suleiman Bello,
stressed that the next PDP chairman should be
elected from the North-East zone.
