Wike's stopped zoning of PDP presidency to southeast - Bwala
Bwala noted in an interview on Friday, September 23, that at a time in the PDP when it was being discussed that the presidential slot be zoned to the southeast or northeast (the two zones yet to get the ticket) Wike allegedly frustrated the plan.
According to Bwala, Wike did this when the ticket was to be micro-zoned to the southeast because he was interested in it.

“The whole gamut of power zoning here or there started with Governor Wike. He virtually had everything he wanted. He brought this chairman (Ayu). When a discussion was being done in the party that power should be zoned, I recall very well, Atiku was inclined that it should be zoned to either southeast or northeast – these are the two geo-political zones that have not benefited."
