Apex Igbo youth socio-political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC, worldwide has claimed that three governors in the South East will lead a mass defection from the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP if the party fails to be open on zoning for the 2023 presidency.
OYC said this in a statement signed by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, its President-General; Comrade Obinna Achionye, Deputy President-General and Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, Secretary-General.
It said the proposed PDP Board of Trustees’ meeting scheduled for November 18 and the National Executive Council meeting scheduled for November 19 2020 were the last opportunities for the party to revert to zoning as enshrined in its constitution.
The OYC said that the party zoning formula favours southeast for presidency in 2023.
OYC warned that Igbo politicians caught negotiating for Vice President slot will suffer stiff penalties and consequences.
