The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has said that it is yet to decide on the zone to fly its flag in the 2023 presidential election.

Recall that the Governor Bala Mohammed-led Peoples Democratic Party Committee on the Review of the 2019 General Elections, had recommended that the party should throw open the contest for its 2023 Presidential ticket.

But in a vehement opposition to the recommendation, leaders of the South-3ast and South-South on Thursday rejected the report.

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and its counterpart, Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), called on the PDP to reject the committee’s recommendation.

Amidst this controversy over the committee’s report, the PDP National Public Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Friday, clarified that the party has not adopted any of the recommendations issued by the Governor Bala Mohammed-led Committee.

He said, “Due to enquiries from our members and the general public, it has become imperative to clarify that PDP is yet to adopt any of the recommendations proposed by the Senator Bala Mohammed‘s Committee on the Review of the 2019 Elections.

“As such, it will be incongruous for anyone to assert that any decision has been taken by PDP on the zoning of the Presidency ahead of the 2023 general elections.

“PDP leaders, members and supporters are enjoined to note that the party is yet to take any decision on the proposals presented by the committee.”
