The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday denied reports that it has zoned its presidential slot ahead of the 2023 election to the North-east and South-east geo-political zones.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party accused political terrorists of spreading false news.
The PDP stated that its governors are not divided along lines of ambition ahead of the 2023 general election.
According to the PDP spokesperson, the party has not discussed the 2023 election, adding that it is currently working on how to win the Kogi and Bayelsa State Governorship election holding on November 16, 2019.
The statement reads: “The PDP says those behind the reports are political terrorists whose plan is to mislead the public and cause disaffection within the ranks of our party with the hope of using such fabrications to further their own selfish political ambitions.
“The PDP states categorically that our governors are not divided along any lines of ambition towards 2023, neither is there any plot to stop the ambition of any of our members.
“For the avoidance of doubt, our party is yet to discuss the 2023 presidential election, overtly or covertly, at any time whatsoever.
“If anything, the PDP is currently working with Nigerians on how to win its elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states and will not be distracted by individuals who found themselves operating in the highest offices of the land but failing in governance.
“As a party, we are also working with our respective state governors and legislators across the country as they work hard, in line with the manifesto of our party, to improve on the welfare and development of Nigerians.”
