The Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, has stated the Peoples Democratic Get together (PDP) is targeted on successful the 2023 presidential elections and never counting on zoning.
Wike acknowledged this on Channels Tv’s Dawn Every day programme on Tuesday.
Based on the Governor, solely the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) can afford the luxurious of zoning.
Wike defined that when he contested the Rivers governorship election in 2015, there have been ideas he shouldn’t be given the PDP’s ticket, as he’s from the identical zone as his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi.
However he was ultimately allowed to expire of necessity.
“As an opposition celebration, we take a look at all variables. What is going to make us win the election (comes) first. That’s what is vital to us. The ruling celebration can say that (zoning) however for the opposition celebration, there are variables.
“So, it is going to be fallacious for me as an opposition individual to say this should be carried out now. No, I can’t do this,” Wike stated.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew and ally, Mamman Daura, stirred up controversy final week, when he acknowledged that zoning shouldn’t decide who emerges the subsequent President in 2023.
