The Peoples Democratic Party has said its presidential ticket will not be zoned to any region.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba, said this on Wednesday after the national executive committee meeting at the party’s secretariat in Abuja.

He said the decision was in tandem with the recommendation of the party’s zoning committee.

“After a very extensive deliberation, NEC aligned with the recommendation of the PDP national zoning committee that the presidential election should now be left open.

“The party should also work towards consensus where possible,” Ologunagba said.

The party’s decision implies that all presidential hopefuls from the six geo-political zones can contest at the party’s special convention scheduled to take place on May 28.

“Delegates from across the country will elect a candidate to represent the party in the 2023 presidential election at the special convention.
