  South-West PDP demands more than SGF from Atiku in 2019



The South-West Zone of the People’s Democratic Party has urged the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to give more key positions to the zone, if he emerges as president.

The South-West Vice-Chairman of the party, Dr. Eddy Olefeso, made the demand in Lagos on Friday night, at a meeting of key members across the six states in the zone.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports the meeting, which lasted hours, had in attendance a former Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Olabode George; the current Deputy National Chairman (South), Chief Yemi Akinwonmi; and a former National Vice Chairman of the party, Alhaji Tajudeen Oladipo.

Olafeso said though the promise of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation slot by Atiku was a good development, the zone deserved more key political and government positions.

The Vice-Chairman said that the zone had been schemed out in the power arrangement of the party for the past few years.

Olafeso said for Atiku to give the zone a sense of belonging and compensate “for the years of abandonment”, he should zone key positions  like the Chief of Staff to the President and Àttorney-General of the Federation to the South-West in addition to the SGF.

“We have been denied for too long. In 2011, the country under the control of our party zoned the position of the Speaker of the House of Representatives to the zone and it was taken away.

“And from 2011 to 2015, we were left just like that and the reverberating effect of that abandonment is the reason why we are still having the hangover of neglect till today.

“Now we are here again, the party is working with a zone with 14million votes, the second largest in the country.  We refuse and we will not accept where we finish the job in the next election and for one reason or the other, we will not be considered.
