PDP will be defeated if it doesn’t zone presidential ticket to South-Bode George

Bode George, chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the party will be “soundly defeated” if it doesn’t zone presidential ticket to the South.

The PDP is yet to make decisions on which region of the country will produce the party’s 2023 presidential candidate.

The development has spurred polarising opinions among stakeholders of the party; with some backing the zoning of the presidential slot to the south while others are calling for the ticket to throw open to all regions of the country.

George warned that failure to zone the PDP presidential ticket means the party is “looking for serious trouble” in 2023.

He said the PDP must “embrace equity, justice and fairness”. He added that throwing the presidential ticket open will also be doing incalculable damage to the psychological minds; especially for the majority of people who are not card-carrying members of the party.

“If the party decides a no to political zoning, I can then say we are looking for serious trouble”.

“A warning shot and a good lesson for us to think about,” the party chieftain said.

“Let’s think about how this country can grow. Turn by turn, Nigeria is limited; what’s wrong with doing that. As I said, it’s not a 100 metres dash race but a continuum. Let there be equity, justice and fairness.
