EKO HOT BLOG reports that ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Kwara State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has confirmed the zoning of its gubernatorial ticket to the Northern District of the state.
Its Publicity Secretary, Tunde Asholu, who disclosed the development on Monday, listed justice, fairness and equity, as the determinant factors responsible for the party’s decision.
Ashaolu said the development followed a series of “exhaustive sessions with stakeholders of the party from the three senatorial districts” at the weekend.
The new twist is expected to accentuate the argument and controversy over which zone among the three senatorial districts in the state should produce the party’s gubernatorial flag bearer come 2023.
In a statement that was later released by the party, the PDP said: “All the organs of the party played a crucial role in arriving at its decisions after making series of consultations around the state under the guidance of its leader, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
“The decision process involved the Local Government Working Committees of the party across the 16 local government areas and 193 wards in the state.
“Each local government area presented 17 stakeholders which comprise of women, youths and elders of the party in the decision-making process.
“The decision has been made and has been agreed as a consensus by all the three senatorial districts that Kwara North should produce the next governor come 2023,” the statement added.
