The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hinted that the zoning arraignment will play a key role in deciding who emerges as the party’s candidate in the 2023 presidential election.

A former vice president, Atiku Abubakar was recently reported to be planning to contest the 2023 presidential ambition.

Adamu who serves as the commissioner of works and energy in Adamawa state pointed out that he was misquoted by the media over the issue, The Tribune reports.
He said he was only trying to draw a distinction between himself and his father’s political stand.
According to Adamu, what he meant was that he comes from a political family with his father having caved a political nitch for himself, constitutionally, he has the right to contest under whichever condition.
Meanwhile, Jude Emeka Idimogu, the apex leader of Ndigbo in the Lagos state chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has said the Ndigbo in the state and across Nigeria should regard the party as the only one that would guarantee their right to have a shot at the presidency in 2023.
The Nation reports that Idimogu, who is as a lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isolo state constituency II at the Lagos state House of Assembly, was commenting on complaints of marginalisation by the Igbo and other parts of the southeast regarding political disparity in the country.
Legit.ng gathered that he advised the Ndigbo to join the APC to enable them to clinch the presidency after many years.
Idimogu said the APC remained the party to beat, stressing that there was no other party with the kind of relevance it has, even as he added that joining other parties would not be a surety for their goal.
