THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has shifted the proposed 96th meeting of its National Executive Committee (NEC) by one day, even as it has announced an adjustment in its 2023 general election timetable of activities.

The NEC, which was scheduled to take place on Tuesday, May 10, has now been moved by 24 hours to Wednesday 11.

The meeting is seen as crucial as it is expected to take a position on the zoning of its presidential ticket. It is to consider whether to zone the position to the South or throw it open to all sections of the country.

The meeting will consider the report submitted by Governor Samuel Ortom-led PDP Zoning Committee, which was unable to take a definite stance on the matter.

A total of 15 presidential aspirants from the six geo-political zones of the country have already been cleared to participate in the party’s primaries.

According to the National Secretary of the party, Senator Samuel N. Anyanwu, the original day of the NEC meeting was changed because it clashed with the Local Government Delegate Election involving all members of the party.
