The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it has not zoned its presidential ticket for the 2023 general elections to any part of the country.
The party made the clarification in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja on Saturday.
Mr Ologunagba said the attention of the party was drawn to comments it had zoned its presidential ticket to a particular part of the country.
He described the speculation as misleading, saying it did not represent the position of the Party.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP emphatically and unequivocally states that it has not zoned its presidential ticket to any part of the country.
“The PDP is a political party founded on democratic principles and every action of the party, including zoning, is based on extensive consultations, discussions and consideration of all the issues as well as the various tendencies and interests across the nation.
“This is with the main objective of ensuring that the unity, peaceful co-existence and development of our nation are reinforced and promoted.” the statement said.
Mr Ologunagba urged Nigerians and party members to disregard the zoning claims, adding that “Our Party also cautions those behind the claims to desist forthwith.”
