The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ibrahim Abdullahi has said the six geo-political zones of the country will be given equal opportunity to seek the party’s ticket for the 2023 Presidential election.
Abdullahi, who stated this yesterday when he received Northern Advocates of Good Governance, (NAFGG), on behalf of the PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu at the party’s headquarters in Abuja hinted that the party’s 2023 Presidency will be thrown open.
He disclosed that “the new National Working Committee (NWC) under the leadership of Senator Iyorchia Ayu has already resolved that it will ensure the six geo-political zones of Nigeria are given equal opportunity to bill for the available offices to rescue and rebuild Nigeria.
Abdullahi said, ” There will be hope for Nigerians who have lost hope in the current government and their hope will be redeemed. In the days ahead you will find the vehicle to join, which is PDP. That dashed hope, that lost hope will be rekindled”.
The PDP Deputy Publicity scribe commended the group, which is demanding that the party’s presidential ticket be zoned to North-East or North-Central.
According to a letter issued by the NAFGG, dated February 2, 2022 addressed to the National Chairman of the PDP and signed by National Coordinator, Mahmoud Mohammed Katun, requested that the party’s presidential ticket be thrown open.
NAFGG said it vehemently kicks against what it described as “illogical pressure” being mounted by some interest groups and self-serving politicians, who are insisting that the presidency of Nigeria in 2023 must be zoned to the southern part of the country.
The group said for the avoidance of doubt, nobody has the right to exclude any segment of this country from aspiring for the highest office in the land, especially segments of the North that have never had the opportunity of occupying the prime position.
