Consensus candidate: I’m not stepping down for any aspirant — Pius Anyim

A presidential aspirant and former Senate President, Senator Pius Anyim, Sunday, ruled out the possibility of stepping down for any aspirant ahead of the presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.


Senator Anyim, who spoke on radio programme tagged Political roundtable, monitored on Mainland 98.3fm, also expressed worry at the worsening rate of insecurity just as he promised to revive the economy when elected the country’s next President.


He said: “Zoning is a constitutional matter in PDP, the worry I have is that some people may get away with it in the interim but on a long run, it will weaken that organization and the organization will not have power to protect its member, the fact that it’s a constitutional matter in the PDP.


“As at today the committee report is yet to be considered by NEC, but they are holding this week, they are the only authority to take decision on zoning.


“Whichever way it goes, I am in the race.


“We have zoned the party office under this current dispensation, what we did was to zone north south, each region now went back and micro zone, micro-zoning within region.


“If rotation is base on equity and fairness the north should allow it go to south why under zone within the south should allow it go to south east.


South east have the prerequisite experience required,


“There is no zone in this country today that you cannot find competent, capable and very ready that can make this country great.


“We have very capable, experience, willing and ever ready that can make this country great. By the time we reduce our democracy to naira and kobo, then we are all guilty of setting our country back


“We can work together so that nobody will say because we are too many fighting each other that is why it won’t come to us, we will work together to make sure we bring this to south east, who will represent is another issue we have not talk about.
