The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, declared yesterday that former president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, can contest for the presidential ticket of the party pending the outcome of the zoning arrangement of the party ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
He, however, explained that the zoning of the party’s presidential ticket for the 2023 election was dependent on the report of the Governor Bala Mohammed-led committee which was set up to review the reason why the party lost the 2019 election and make recommendations on the way forward.
Secondus, who stated this yesterday at a media interaction to mark the three years anniversary of the National Working Committee (NWC), however stressed the need to deemphasize the talks about zoning and the politics of 2023 in the light of the deplorable state of the country.
Lamenting that Nigeria was in a comatose state, he stressed that it was unfortunate that the governing party had abandoned governance for politics.
He criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for backtracking on his decision to brief the National Assembly on the security situation in the country.
