The motion to uphold the zoning arrangement was introduced by former Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, Chikwendu Kanu, and seconded by former Senate President, Senator Adolphus Wabara, after the PDP committee on rotation and zoning’s recommendations were adopted. A statement signed by Abraham Amah, the Vice Chairman and acting Publicity Secretary, stated:

“The state caucus subsequently zoned the Chairmanship to Abia North, as all positions formerly held by Abia South were turned to Abia North, all positions held by Abia North were turned to Abia Central, and all positions held by Abia Central were turned over to Abia South.”

Some PDP members have lauded the zoning formula, believing it will promote stability and equity.

However, some members from Abia North have expressed dissatisfaction with the arrangement, insisting that the next PDP Governorship slot should be allocated to Abia North to compensate for the perceived “injustice” of 2023.

Ogbo Kalu, a party leader from Bende LGA, Abia North, commented, “The zoning of the PDP chairmanship to Abia North is not what Abia North deserves. I tell you that it cannot assuage the injustice our party did to Abia North. We deserve the gubernatorial ticket.” He attributed the party’s poor performance in 2023 to the imposition of candidates and the unfair treatment of Abia North.
