Eventually, the Northern leaders micro-zoned the post to North Central zone. At the end, they reached an agreement that produced former Senate President, Iyorchia Ayu, as the Northern consensus candidate for the National Chairman position. Meanwhile, many people have been asking the top post that South East will get this time based on PDP's zoning arrangement for the party positions. This is because the South East is one of PDP's main stronghold over the years.

What is the top post South East got?

It is the post of PDP National Secretary. This is the administrative head of the party. The post is very important in the party politics because it is the next in importance after the National Chairman and those of Deputy National Chairman for North and South. The post of National Vice Chairman for each geo-political zone is not very influential like the post of the National Secretary.

In fact, according to a report by The Punch, the PDP leaders in the South East zone have made a key decision on who will take the post of the National Secretary. They agreed that Senator Sam Anyanwu is the consensus candidate of the South East for the post. In view of this, Anyanwu can as well go on to emerge unopposed for the post at the PDP national convention scheduled for October 30th and 31st, 2021.

Apart from the National Secretary post, there are some other posts the South East got as the North swapped positions with the South in line with the PDP's decision after adopting the recommendation of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi's committee.

Will Anyanwu get any opposition?

It does not seem likely to happen. This is because no other politician or stronger aspirant indicated interest to contest for the post of PDP National Secretary. Moreover, South East PDP leaders have also unanimously endorsed Senator Anyanwu for the post as the zone's consensus candidate.

This means that even if anybody comes out to contest against him, the person is most likely to lose due to the level of key support Anyanwu has to emerge as the favoured occupant of the post. In view of this reality, no right-thinking politician will like to come and lose after seeing the handwriting on the wall. After all, PDP has been adopting he consensus strategy just like the North did in the case of Ayu.
