The new zoning system introduced by the Peoples Democratic Party PDP may favour the Former President, Goodluck Jonathan in 2023 If He Decides to contest 2023 Presidential Race. It should be recalled that the Leaders of the Party have changed their decision that the Position of the National Chairman of the Party should be zoned to the North and as a result of this, the Presidential ticket will be zoned to the South in 2023.
Presently, There is no Formidable Presidential Candidate who have shown interest in the South to contest Presidential race in 2023 under the Platform of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP. This shows that if Goodluck Jonathan decides to contest Presidential race under the Platform of PDP, he might be given the Presidential ticket in the Party. It should be recalled that the All Progressives Congress APC have reached out to Jonathan to dump his Party PDP for APC but he rejected the offer.
Meanwhile, The Peoples Democratic Party PDP Leaders are looking for all means to keep Jonathan active in the Party. It should be recalled that PDP Leaders of the Party accused Goodluck Jonathan that he has not been very active in the Party since the 2015 Presidential race. It should be recalled that Jonathan contested 2015 Presidential Race under the Platform of PDP but He was defeated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The decision of PDP to zone Presidency to the South may give Goodluck Jonathan the opportunity to contest Presidential race under the Platform of PDP because the Party Leaders will want to use the avenue to Compensate Goodluck Jonathan for his loss in 2015 Presidential race. As a result of this, Jonathan stand the chance of clinching Presidential ticket under the Platform of the Party.
