SGF Post Will Be Zoned To South West – Gbenga Daniel
The director General, Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation Gbenga Daniel made a declaration to news men on sunday, 21 october that the position of Secretary to the Government of the Federation will be zoned to South West.
Recall that the national chairman of the PDP had been initially zoned to South West but later picked Uche Secondus who comes from South South. Also Peter Obi the vice President Candidate of the PDP hails from South East.
We need to understand that the candidate has control over who becomes his running mate during the election and who becomes the SGF if he wins. “The decisions on major offices are being given serious consideration and no zone or region will be marginalised. “The offices of Senate president and speaker of the House of Reps will be decided after the polls and based on what plays out in both houses. “Aside from major slots, I think what is paramount to the people of the south west is restructuring of the country, which Atiku is very serious about. “So the issue for the South West is not personality or slot issue per say because personalities come and go but restructuring Nigeria is significant and more symbolic than zoned offices,” he said.
Meanwhile, gist36 had reported that the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is its own greatest opposition. Atiku also said that one of APC’s greatest challenge is the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari. The former vice president who was quoted in an interview published in a new book by Isa Odidi: ‘Atiku Abubakar: The Best Choice for President of Nigeria in 2019’ said the APC-led administration has failed to manage its electoral successes.
