2023: Zone Presidential tickets to Southeast, Anyim tells parties

0 79

As political parties geared towards the 2023 presidential election, former Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim has urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other political parties to zone their presidential tickets to the Southeast.

Anyim, who is also a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation made the appeal during his briefing and consultation with Southeast PDP stakeholders.

He said if the Southeast is denied a shot at the presidency in 2023, it would remain a burden on the conscience of the nation.

He said the region has all it takes to lift Nigeria from the verge of collapse.

According to him, “When I declared my interest to contest for the presidency, I was emphatic that I will contest whether the presidency is zoned to the Southeast or not.

“This is because if the presidency is zoned to Southeast, it will satisfy the just demand of equity and fairness.

“If it is not zoned to the Southeast, it will remain a burden on the conscience of the nation.

“Let me, therefore, at this point join all well-meaning Nigerians to appeal to all the political parties to take the fair, just and equitable decision to zone their presidential slots to the South particularly the Southeast.”

Anyim said that he was offering himself for the service of the country.

He added: “Nigerians are looking up to the PDP to rebuild our nation; to protect lives and property; to restore the respect of Nigeria within the comity of nations; to re-align the political structure of Nigeria to reflect the current realities; to revive our economy and save the naira; to rebuild our broken-down social fabric; to create jobs for our teeming youths and rehabilitate our collapsing educational systems among others.

“My brothers and sisters, the summary of these expectations is that Nigerians expect PDP to return to power so that our nation can resume the march to greatness.

“The above tasks are no mean ones. The political pedigree, vision and credentials of who leads the party to accomplish these tasks must command priority attention and consideration of our great party.

“It is in furtherance of this that I put forth my credentials and records for your consideration.”
