2023 Presidency: Igbo Leaders Condemn Senator Suswan And Others For Alleged Zoning Of PDP’s Ticket To The North


The Igbo Leadership Development Foundation (ILDF), has condemned Senator Gabriel Suswan, representing Benue North-East on his statement which he said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would zone the office of President to the North again in 2023, advising him not to insult Igbo sensibilities.

The group  accused the Senator and some others in a statement describing them as, “uncanny and overly ambitious interests” in the leading opposition party of “flying a dangerous kite that would finally sink the PDP”.

Suswan in an exclusive interview on Sunday, said that since the PDP failed to win the 2019 presidential election which it zoned to the North, the party would still retain the ticket in the region since it did not win.

But in a statement signed by its Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Law Mefor and released to newsmen in Abuja yesterday, ILDF queried the rationale behind his claim that the PDP was bound to zone the President to the North in 2023.

ILDF added that such utterances and scheming go a long way  in confirming that lack of commitment to a single term for the party’s candidate in 2019 in order to field a South East candidate in 2023 was the reason the PDP sidelined the party’s South East leaders immediately after the Port Harcourt National Convention and Presidential Primaries.

ILDF also faulted Suswan’s idea of power rotation and warned the lawmaker and the PDP against taking the support of the South East and the South generally for granted.
