Former Governor of Niger State, Dr Babangida Aliyu has revealed that the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has agreed to re-zone the presidency to the northern region despite its earlier agreement that any candidate can contest the election.

Dr Babangida Aliyu made this disclosure on Friday when the Atiku Support Organisation visited him in Minna, adding that he is confident of the success of the group.

He also assured the group of his unalloyed support.

‘In our zoning agreement, we have agreed to re-zone the North as requested by others but we have agreed written openly as a result of what has happened that any candidate from any part of the country can now contest this election,’ Aliyu said.

He added that the group has done wonderfully well by going round nooks and crannies of the country to ensure that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar emerges as the party flag bearer and is elected President of Nigeria come 2023.

The National Coordinator of the group, Dr Victor Moses, thanked the former governor for his continued support for Atiku Abubakar even as 2023 approaches.

Meanwhile, Africa Daily News, New York recalls that the newly inaugurated National Chairman of PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, has boasted that the party will reclaim leadership in at least 25 states of the country in 2023.

Ayu made the vow when he spoke at a Thanksgiving Service/Reception held in his honour at the Aper-Aku Stadium in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

‘We are determined to reclaim at least 25 states in this country.

‘We determined to claim the two national assembly seats – Senate and House of Assembly.

‘We will stop the drift of people who migrated from the PDP to other parties.

‘We shall move on a serious drive for more people in the party,’ he said.

The national chairman also said that the PDP would, as a team, fight tooth and nail to win Ekiti and Osun States in their soon coming governorship elections, stressing the need for the party faithful to square up to the challenges ahead.
