The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it will not zone the party’s ticket for the 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.
Some politicians have been clamouring for zoning of the governorship ticket to a particular region of the state ahead of the 2021 poll.

But addressing a press conference on Friday, in Abuja, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodinyan, said the party had taken a decision on the issue, adding that there was no going back.
According to him, the NWC of the party had adopted all resolutions of the South East Zonal Working Committee meeting of the party on July 3, 2020, in Enugu, thereby burying the issue of zoning in Anambra PDP.
Part of the July 3, 2020 resolution reads: “While reiterating that the PDP is not zoning the governorship, we wish to commend all the gubernatorial aspirants of our party in Anambra State, for their matured politicking.
“We bring them the assurances of our National Chairman of a level playing field and the conduct of most transparent primaries.”
Ologbondiyan, who was acompanied by the South East Zonal Chairman of the PDP, Austin Umahi, said the party also recognised Sir Ndubisi Nwobu as the duly elected and legally recognised chairman of PDP in the state and called on INEC, security agencies among others to take note.
