The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared as false comments and speculations from certain individuals claiming that the Party had zoned its Presidential ticket to a particular part of Nigeria.
According to a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, this is completely misleading as it does not in any way represent the position of the Party.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP emphatically and unequivocally states that it has not zoned it Presidential ticket to any part of the country.
“The PDP is a political party founded on democratic principles and every action of the Party, including zoning, is based on extensive consultations, discussions and consideration of all the issues as well as the various tendencies and interests across the nation, with the main objective of ensuring that the unity, peaceful co-existence and development of our nation are reinforced and promoted,” it added.
The PDP said it therefore urges Nigerians, its teeming members and supporters to completely disregard the unfounded zoning claims as being peddled.
The Party also cautioned those behind the claims to desist forthwith.
“The PDP thanks Nigerians across board for the overwhelming interest they have in our Party as their sure platform to Rescue and Rebuild our nation from misrule and urges them to remain united and focused as we join forces for the task ahead,” the party added.
