A distinguished group of leaders from the South-East geopolitical zone has threatened to ask a huge number of its loyalists to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if it fails to zone the 2023 presidency to the region.
Naija News understands that the group under the auspices of the Igbo Leadership Development Foundation stated this in a statement made available to newsmen by its Director of Public Affairs, Dr Law Mefor, in Abuja on Thursday, March 25.
The PUNCH reports that other signatories to the statement include Dr. Godwin I. Udibe (Chairman) and Onyebuchi Obeta (National Secretary).
The group vowed to drag the PDP to the court of competent jurisdiction if it failed to stick to its constitution which provides for a rotational presidency.
