News Investigators/ The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday denied claims that it has zoned its presidential ticket, saying it’s untrue.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba described the claim as completely misleading.
Mr Ologunagba said: “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 statement said.
He said the party was founded on democratic principles, saying that 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.
He said the party has the main objective of ensuring that the unity, peaceful co-existence and development of the nation are reinforced and promoted.
The statement further added that the party urged Nigerians and “our teeming members and supporters to completely disregard the unfounded zoning claims as being peddled, just as it cautioned those behind the claims to desist forthwith.”
