2023: Southeast PDP leaders endorse Anyim, urge party to zone Presidency to the South


Southeast leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday appealed to the party to zone its presidential ticket to the South, particularly the Southeast. 

The leaders made the call on the occasion of a special briefing session by Senator Anyim Pius Anyim. 

Anyim used the occassion to consult the leaders of the geo political zone on his aspiration to contest the 2023 presidency on the platform of the PDP.

In their resolution which was unanimously adopted, the Southeast PDP stakeholders urged the party to, in the interest of equity, justice and harmonious national cohesion “zone their presidential ticket to the Southern zones of the country and the South East in particular.”

The leaders said the choice of who becomes President of Nigeria in 2023 has become a strategic imperative for the future of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“In this regard, the vision, capacity, experience and disposition of the next president will make the difference about the socio-political stability and economic development of the country,” they said.

They said they have found such a person in Anyim with the leadership qualities that will rescue Nigeria.

“That Senator Anyim, through us here assembled, wishes to express his profound gratitude for the overwhelming warmth and understanding, which leaders across the nation showed to him and his aspiration throughout his wide-ranging and extensive consultations so far. 

“That the people of the South East geo political zone have earned the right to occupy the office of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023 on account of their eminent qualifications and overwhelming contributions to the development of all parts of the federation through the years. 

“We further reiterate that the choice of a South East citizen as presidential candidate of the party in 2023 will guarantee to every Nigerian a sense of equity, justice and inclusion in the management of the affairs of the nation. 

“In our view, this is the best way of ensuring that we build a nation that leaves no one or group behind,” the resolution further read.
