OYC opposes PDP zoning VP to South West
Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide yesterday condemned alleged plan by the People Democracy Party (PDP) to zone the position of vice president to the South west.
In a statement signed the Deputy President General, Comrade Obinna Achuonye, and Deputy National Publicity Officer, Mazi Alex Osaka, the group said there attention had been drawn to purported plan, which they said would amount to the PDP digging its own grave.
The statement reads in part: “The attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide had been drawn to a malicious report and nefarious plot that PDP had concluded plans to zone the Vice Presidency to South West or South-South over the South East quest to occupy the position in 2019.
“This clandestine plot is barbaric, satanic and will never see the light of the day. If it happens to be a reality, OYC insists that the National Chairman of PDP, Mr. Uche Secondus, should clarify this allegation immediately before Ndigbo, especially the youths, take their destiny in our own hands.”
“We remind the originators of this malicious plot against Ndigbo, that Ndigbo had paid their price in PDP since 1999, its morally wrong to return the Vice Presidency to either South West or South-South, after the two political zones had occupied the highest office of the Presidents in 1999 in the persons of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and in 2010 in Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, leaving Southeast out in the cold”.
