PDP denies zoning offices for 2023 general election


Main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has denied the reports that it will retain the zoning formula it used in the 2019 general election for the 2023 presidential poll.

The party fielded Alhaji Atiku Abubakar from the Northeast (presidential candidate) and Mr Peter Obi from the Southeast (vice-presidential candidate) for its 2019 ticket.

A national newspaper (not The Nation) reported yesterday that the PDP intended to retain the 2019 zoning formula for the 2023 presidential race.

At a media briefing on Sunday in Abuja PDP’s spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan described those behind the report as “political terrorists”.

According to him, their plan is to mislead the public and cause disaffection within the party with the hope of using such fabrication to further their own political ambitions.

Ologbondiyan also refuted the report that governors elected on the platform of the PDP were divided over their ambitions ahead of the 2023 elections.

He said: “The PDP states categorically that our governors are not divided along any lines of ambition towards 2023, neither is there any plot to stop the ambition of any of our members.

“For the avoidance of doubt, our party is yet to discuss the 2023 presidential election, overtly or covertly, at any time whatsoever.”
