As the PDP National Executive Committee (NEC) is set to meet tomorrow to discuss crucial issues within the party which includes the Zoning of Elective Offices ahead of the Party's forthcoming National Convention and the 2023 Presidential Poll. Below are Two Key Reasons why the PDP might eventually zone it's 2023 Presidential Ticket to the North.

Firstly, The Huge Presence of Political Gladiators with a Formidable Structure and Large Followership is a major reason why the party may eventually settle for a Presidential Candidate from the North. PDP Topshots in the Region such as Atiku Abubakar, Senator Bukola Saraki, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Aminu Tambuwal all have a strong Political Structure across the nook and cranny of the Country. Thus, These PDP Chieftains are much more Popular, have the Financial Strength and Strong Political Structure when compared to their Counterparts from the Southern Region.

Another Key Reason the PDP might pick a Northern Candidate as it's Flagbearer in 2023 is because of the Voting Strength in the Region. It's no longer a news that the North has always been a major determinant of whoever 'll win a Presidential Election since 1999. Meanwhile, the PDP has a major dominance in the South-East and South-South Geo-political Zones. Thus, Presenting a Northern Candidate in 2023 might give the party a landslide victory over the All Progressives Congress (APC).
