Opinion: How The Recent Zoning System Of PDP Could Have Paved Way For Umahi To Become President

The recent zoning system of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP could have paved way for the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi to achieve his Presidential ambition, if he were to be a member of the Party. It should be recalled that the PDP Governors recently met and resolved in their meeting that the Position of National Chairman of the Party should be zone to the North. This means that the Presidency may be zoned to the South.

Though, The Youths in the Party have been agitating that the Leaders of the Party should have a rethink and throw the Presidential ticket open, to everyone who is interested. But either the Presidential ticket is zone to the South or the Ticket is thrown open to everyone, It would favoured Governor Umahi, if he remains in PDP. It should be recalled that the Governor of Rivers State, Governor Wike had earlier challenged Umahi that he dumped the Party for APC due to his Presidential Ambition.

Meanwhile, Governor Umahi made it known to the Public that one of the reasons why he dumped PDP for APC is that the PDP has marginalised the Southeast since 1999. This was in contrary to Governor Wike's allegations to Umahi that he dumped the PDP because of his Presidential ambition which he thinks he can't realise, if he remains in Party. Governor Umahi could have been one of the PDP Governor in Southeast that will be agitating for Presidency in 2023.

Though, Umahi can also contest for Presidency in APC but he may not get it on platter of Gold in APC. He may need to restrategise in APC because he is new to the System. It should be recalled that Governor David Umahi was the first PDP Governor who dumped the Party for APC, before Governor Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers State and Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State defected to APC after him. The recent zoning system of the Party could have paved way for Umahi to become President, if he remains in PDP.
