South East PDP Rejects Zoning Of Presidential Ticket To North

The National Vice Chairman, (Southeast) of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Austin Umahi, has rejected the rumoured zoning of the 2023 presidential ticket of the party to the North.

In a statement in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State yesterday, the PDP Vice Chairman pointed out that the decision on zoning of the presidential ticket has not been discussed by the leadership of the main opposition party.

Umahi’s statement was in reaction to a recent statement by Gabriel Suswam, a former Governor of Benue State, that the party’s 2023 presidential ticket had been zoned to the North.

He said that Suswam spoke for himself and called on the PDP National Working Committee, NWC, to quickly address the former Governor’s comment for the interest of peace and unity of the party.

Umahi noted that the South East has made tremendous sacrifices for the growth, well-being and survival of the PDP.

“As a member of the NWC of our great party, I am shocked and embarrassed at this disclosure, as the NWC had never discussed nor taken any such decision.

“As a political party, positions are only zoned in the PDP after they have been robustly debated by all six zones and unanimously agreed on as serving the best interest of the unity of the party and national exigencies. ”

He said for this reason, the NWC must not allow one man to pass across his personal wishes as collective resolve.

“The statement amounts to one being a judge in his case, which offends all known laws of natural justice.”
