We have never decided in favor of the brush party since 2015.So, how might they surrender its Presidential pass to a zone which never decided in favor of it in the last two general races.
The Forum further expressed that the PDP won't zone its Presidential pass toward the South East geo political zone.
Some portion of the announcement peruses "There are more clear signs that previous Vice President Atiku Abubakar, may pick the PDP presidential ticket again in 2023.

Not surprisingly, we will play the supportive role by either delivering a running mate to one of the presidential competitors, conceivably the PDP. On the off chance that the Presidential ticket of the APC goes toward the South West, unquestionably the South East can't deliver a running mate" the gathering expressed
