Decision on zoning will be the product of wide consultation – PDP

The People’s Democratic Party has said it has not decided on zoning ahead of 2023 general elections.

This came as an explanation to the proposed proposals of the party’s Committee on the Review of 2019 Elections, led by Bauchi Governor Bala Mohammed, on zoning.

The board suggested the PDP consider merit as opposed to zoning its presidential ticket to any international zone.

This proposal has not gone down well with clan leaders of the party, particularly those from the south who feels it’s their chance to handle candidate for the highest seat.

Swimming into the debate, the representative for the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said in an articulation that PDP had not taken any choice on any of the proposals contained in the report.

The statement read: “The PDP notes that the recommendations will be subjected to its democratic process by relevant organs of the party and consultation across all national interests.

“While our party appreciates the enthusiasm by Nigerians on our nomination processes, the PDP assures that its decision on zoning will be the product of wide consultation, discussions and consensus building, taking into consideration the aggregate aspiration and hope of the generality of the Nigerian people.

“Our party has, however, noted the disposition and line of discussion from various political interests across the six geo-political zones of our country in this regard, and at the appropriate time, the collective understanding of Nigerians will prevail.”
