Although Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi led zoning committee is yet to officially announced how the positions in the party were zoned, PDP members already know what to expect.
According to Nation newspapers two high profile defection looms in the PDP over zoning as top South-South PDP Governor forbids 2023 Northern President insisting that he would rather leave the party than work for the emergence of a Northern President in 2023.
This development in PDP will form the basis of our discussion in this article.
Why does 2 high profile defection loom in PDP?
The idea of zoning the 2023 presidential ticket of the party to the North has caused a crack in PDP, especially among the Southern PDP Governors.
2 Governors one from the South-East and another from the South-South are already in talks with the APC because it is becoming clear that the party wants to field a Northern presidential candidate.

They are angry that the party is not considering the South despite the yearnings of the people of Southern Nigeria and the decision of the Southern Governors that power must shift to the South in 2023.

The anger is that why should another Northerner succeed Buhari who will complete his 8 years in office by 2023.
This top South-South Governor made it clear that he will never work for the emergence of a Northern President in 2023 and that his next option is to dump the party for the APC.
The fact is that the PDP will be gone if two Governors dump the party at this time after it lost 3 Governors in two years to the APC.
However, we wait for the NEC of the PDP to announce the zoning formula this Wednesday and see the next line of action of these Governors.
