2023: Zoning Will Not Be Considered In Nominating A Candidate – PDP
PDP National President Prince Uche Secondus says that the party is ready to run a credible presidential candidate who will fly the party’s flag for office in the 2023 general election.
Uche told reporters in Bauchi shortly after the end of a special meeting of party leaders at the Bauchi State Government House on Friday night.
The Chairman said that, as long as it is acceptable and reasonable, young people, whether young or old, have the opportunity to run for office and to make the right choice. The ideal is for us to be our nominee in the next presidential election.
“Everyone is eligible, young, old, governors, non-governors are qualified to participate, and we have room for everyone; if you win, you become our candidate.”
He also identified the PDP as a party that is optimistic that Nigeria will win the general election in 2023, given the current situation in the country.

Speaking on those who defected from the party to the moon, he pointed out that there is definitely no division in the PDP except for the political tradition of going back and forth.
The chairman assured Nigerians of a better life under the PDP rule. He took the opportunity to commend PDP governors across the country for their efforts in expanding their state development projects.
The PDP national chairman, meanwhile, expressed optimism that they would persuade their disbanded members on the basis of their grievances to ensure their return to the PDP.
Uche Secondus said during the meeting they discussed important issues affecting the PDP as a whole and wanted Bauchi for a visit to encourage the state government.
Speaking on the occasion, Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, testified that Nigeria was facing security challenges despite recent successes but that the Federal Government needed to step up its efforts to address the security challenges.
He called on the federal government to expedite the recruitment of youths in the security forces, including the police, army, SSS, and other security agencies to address security challenges and provide employment to youths across the country.
Among the PDP members present at the event were PDP national chairman Uche Secondus, Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, former Senate President David Mark, former Gombe State Governor Ibrahim Hassan.
