According to THIS DAY, in Owie’s words: “Under the PDP constitution zoning is not in it but it was brought in. It was on the basis of injustice meted out to the west because of the case of late Chief MKO Abiola that led to the ceding of the presidency to the west which produced President Olusegun Obasanjo as president.

“The two major parties decided to bring their candidates from the South-West, our party the PDP presented Olusegun Obasanjo while the APP/AD produced Olu Falae and we went into the election to build unity, to build a consensus that it should rotate. Jamb results

“Obasanjo lost his unit, lost his ward, lost his local government, lost his state, lost his zone but still won the election because there was a consensus. Obasanjo did his eight years even though within the time we tried to impeach and the presidency moved to the north, the two major parties picked their candidates from the north and late President Yar’Adua won but Yar’Adua spent two years plus and God called him and his Vice became acting president and then contested a second one and became president so if you calculate; from 1999 to now under the PDP, the Southern part of Nigeria has taken 14 years 240 days as president of this country while the north took two years plus for the PDP.”
