Bode George, chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the party will be “roundly defeated” in the 2023 presidential election if zoning is jettisoned.
Speaking in an interview with journalists on Tuesday, George warned that failure to zone the PDP presidential ticket means the party is “looking for serious trouble” in 2023.
The PDP is yet to make a decision on which region of the country will produce the party’s 2023 presidential candidate.
The development has spurred polarising opinions among stakeholders of the party, with some backing the zoning of the presidential slot to the south while others are calling for the ticket to be thrown open to all regions of the country.
