Obviously, the southern politicians in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should be on their toes as far as the 2023 presidential candidacy is concerned because of the new turnouts of events that took place during the 94th National Executive Council (NEC) meeting that occurred today. As reported by the Vanguard newspaper, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has expressed his view about the zoning system that the opposition party is operating.

Atiku Abubakar urged all the members of the opposition party to be guided by the spirit of equity and fairness as far as the upcoming presidential election is concerned. The former Vice President of the country advised the leadership of the party to present a presidential candidate that will stand for the southern and northern part of the country altogether. He further stated that the region where such a politician will come is not as important as the success of the political party as a whole.

Before today's meeting, the leaders of the opposition party have zoned the chairmanship position of the party to the northern part of the country, and it follows that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will come from the southern part of the country according to the zoning system which includes the fact that the national chairman of the party and the presidential candidate of that party should not come from the same place. Now that Atiku Abubakar has stated his views that the zoning system is not important to the success of the party, the southern leaders should know one fact.

They should all know that the leaders of the party in the northern part of the country have not agreed with them on the zoning system, and anything may happen before the commencement of the incoming presidential election. All southerners must note that the position of the party may be opened to everyone regardless of the region of those politicians involved in the presidential race. Southern leaders have to erase the fact that the presidential ticket will be zoned to the south.

The fact that the Northern Governors' Forum (NGF) has earlier rejected the demand made by southern governors concerning the 2023 ticket should have given hints on what may happen ahead of the incoming presidential election. The ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for this year may be opened to both southerners and northerners in the country. Southern politicians have to note that fact.
