Nigeria’s opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has ascribed the conversations in the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) about which zone in the country will produce the next president in 2023 to the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbodinyan on Wednesday said individuals who were instrumental to the emergence of Buhari as president are afraid that “perhaps the same thing (Buhari’s failed promises) will happen to their agreement (on zoning)”.
“There are conversations in the APC over were 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.
According to him “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 market place over whether they had agreement or they don’t have agreement. The PDP will not allow itself to be dragged into their own infighting.”
