Nigeria’s opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the ongoing debate on zoning in the party.
In a television interview on Wednesday, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbodinyan, said the PDP is fully aware of the conversation in the APC about which zone in the country will produce the next president in 2023.
He opined that the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari was the reason for the debate on zoning among APC members.
The PDP spokesman said individuals who helped President Buhari emerge as president are afraid that the party will not fulfill its agreement on zoning.
He said: “There are conversations in the APC over where to choose their next candidate from, I am aware. But we must also not lose understanding of this conversation.
“It is because those who worked to bring President Buhari to power and having seen the failures that are attached to the governance of President Muhammadu Buhari and all the failed promises that were made and cannot be actualised are already afraid that perhaps the same thing will happen to their agreement,” Ologbodinyan said when he appeared on ARISE News.
“Some eminent members of the APC have come out already to say they have no agreement, so that is the conversation for them. For us in the People’s Democratic Party, we have our party organs that will take decisions based on the conversations that will arise within our own political party.
“When the time comes, at the fullness of that time our party will take its decision on zoning, but as we speak, allow the APC to be fighting in the marketplace over whether they had an agreement or they don’t have an agreement. The PDP will not allow itself to be dragged into their own infighting.”
