House overturns PDP zoning

next photo

MeMbers of the house of representatives yesterday stunned leaders of the pdp when they elected aMinu
waziri taMbawwal (pdp sokoto) as the new speaker. he defeated Mulikat akande-adeola, who was the choice of the party as
the candidate from the southwest to which the party had zoned the post. at the senate, david Mark and ike ekweremadu were returned to their old
jobs as senate president and deputy senate president respectively. the emergence of Mr tambawwal, however, appears to have put the kibosh to the
pdp’s much troubled zoning arrangement as the southwest and the northeast are now left with no major federal political appointment. >p.2
