Will PDP Zone Presidency To The North After Atiku's Group Rejected The Zoning Of PDP's Chairmanship?

The 2023 presidential election has raised a lot of arguments between different political groups within the country. The Southern Governors forum claimed that their region should produce the next president while some Northern leaders have rejected this decision taken by Southern governors.

Also, the spokesman of Northern Elders Forum (Hakeem Ahmed-Baba) said that the Northern part of Nigeria has the numerical capacity to influence the next presidential election in Nigeria. They told Southern Governors not to impose their presidential candidate on Northerners because it's not in the constitution of Nigeria.

However, PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) zoned their chairmanship position to the Northern part of Nigeria and this has caused a lot of mixed reactions from PDP leaders in the North.

Recently, a socio-political group (Atiku Support Organisation) rejected the recommendation of the PDP committee led by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi which zoned the party’s national chairmanship position to the North.

This information was contained in a press statement signed by Dr El Mo Victor (The group’s National Publicity Secretary) and was made available to journalists in Warri.

The group further disclosed that PDP presidential ticket should be zoned to the North for the sake of equity and fairness.

Nevertheless, many people are curious to know if PDP will zone the 2023 presidency to the North after Atiku's group rejected the zoning of PDP's chairmanship position.

I believe that PDP should give Southerners the opportunity to contest for the 2023 presidency because Atiku Abubakar was given the privilege to contest under the platform of PDP in 2019. So, it will be fair for PDP leaders in the North to support the zoning of presidency to the South under their political party.

Also, since a lot of Nigerians regardless of their political parties are saying that the Southern part of Nigeria should produce the next president. It will be a nice strategy for PDP to zone their presidency to the South in order to get more support during the 2023 presidential election.
