The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it will consult widely and build a consensus before deciding on zoning the 2023 presidential ticket.


The Bala Mohammed-led committee had recommended that the party throw open the contest for its presidential ticket.

 

Commenting on the recommendation on Tuesday, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP national publicity secretary, said the party will run it through its relevant organs, while putting the aspirations of Nigerians into consideration.

 

“The PDP immensely appreciates the overwhelming interest by majority of Nigerians in the PDP as their national rallying point to elect a pan-Nigeria, unifying and people-oriented leadership that would rescue our nation from misrule, come 2023,” the statement reads.


“Our party notes that such unprecedented public interest and confidence in the PDP is responsible for the widespread discussions and enquiries on the recommendations of the Committee on the Review of the 2019 Elections.

 

“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.”
