Confusion seems to have taken the centre-stage in the Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, following the insistence of the former Governor of the State, Senator T.A. Orji that the position of the Governor should be zoned to Abia North.
It should be recalled that the PDP had, on the 26th of March, 2022, issued a statement that it has zoned the governorship position to Abia Central and Abia North.
The statement had irked the Minority Leader of the Nigerian Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe, who attacked the zoning arrangement, saying that it was formulated to exclude him. Abaribe is from Abia South.
In a statement, Senator Orji, who represents Abia Central in the Nigerian Senate, said:
“Let me state categorically clear that my earlier position on the subject matter remains sacrosanct and unambiguous.
“All those working to set Abia State on fire should toe the path of peace, do a rethink and sustain the peace we have been savouring as God’s Own State.”
