2023 Election: Obi’s camp kicks as PDP dumps zoning

The Peoples’ Democratic Party announced on Tuesday that all those who had purchased the presidential forms were free to contest its presidential ticket regardless of zones.

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Debo Ologunagba, said this while responding to questions on the zoning controversy raging in the party.

The National Executive Committee of the party, which would meet on Wednesday next week, also plans to ignore the party’s Zoning Committee report, which recommended that the presidential ticket should be zoned.

Media aide of a former Anambra State Governor and PDP presidential aspirant, Mr. Peter Obi, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, said although the party’s decision remained supreme, it would be an injustice if the South-East was denied the presidential ticket.

However, Ologunagba explained that the constitution gives all qualified Nigerians the right to contest and not be discriminated against.

He said even if the party decided to zone its presidential ticket, it would not stop anybody from contesting.
