Presidential Aspirant Urges PDP To Zone Ticket To South-East

Dr Nwachukwu Anakwenze, a presidential aspirant on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has appealed to the party to zone its presidential ticket to the South-East.
Anakwenze said this yesterday in Abuja shortly after he submitted his expression of interest and nomination forms at the party’s national secretariat.
He said that the south-east was the only zone that had yet to produce the nation’s president since the return to civil rule in 1998.
According to him, the southwest was compensated for the death of Chief MKO Abiola, the winner of the 1993 presidential election and the South-East supported this.
“It is time for everybody to support the southeast, the southwest has had its own turn, south-south has had its own turn too.
“So, for equity and fairness, the party’s ticket and presidency should be zoned to southeast,” he said.
He appealed to party stalwarts and delegates to reconsider the issue of zoning for equity and fairness.
“This is why some of us are throwing our hats into the ring to be able to talk to the PDP family and delegates that will come for the congress to consider fairness.
“We have shown strength, commitment, respect, honour and this is the time that PDP need to reconsider the brain that will recover this country from total collapse,” he said.
Anakwenze appealed to Nigerians to support the course for the zoning of the party’s presidential ticket to the southeast.
He pledged to restore Nigeria’s past glory by rebuilding the economic structure and reviving comatose industries, if elected as the president of the country.
Anakwenze promised to put an end to petroleum scarcity by leveraging on the Petroleum Industrial Bill (PIB) through creation of modular refineries in the country.
The PDP has fixed April 25 for the screening of its presidential aspirants.
