The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that it has not zoned its presidential ticket ahead of the 2023 general elections.

This is against the statement earlier credited to the former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu to the effect that PDP has zoned the presidential ticket to the North. Babangida Aliyu spoke while receiving Atiku Abubakar‘s support group.

Reacting, the PDP said that its attention was drawn to the comments and speculations from certain individuals claiming that the Party has zoned its Presidential ticket to a particular part of the country.

In a statement by its spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, the party said that the statement 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.

“The PDP, therefore, urges Nigerians, our teeming members and supporters to completely disregard the unfounded zoning claims as being peddled. Our Party also cautions those behind the claims to desist forthwith.”
