Presidency: PDP Panel Dumps Zoning

by Kunle Awosiyan

The zoning committee of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, contrary to the expectation of its southern members, has recommended an open race for the party’s 2023 presidential ticket.

The party’s 37-person zoning committee, which took the decision at the Benue State Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja, on Tuesday, cited ‘exigency of time’ for its recommendation.

One of our correspondents learned the committee based its recommendation on the high voter turnout in the North and the party’s determination to return to power.

According to a leaked document obtained by one of our correspondents, the committee stated that although zoning was affirmed in the party’s constitution, exigencies of time made it to dump the arrangement.
