Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has said the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, should zone its presidential ticket to the Southeast.

Ikpeazu explained that the Southeast has not produced Nigeria’s president; hence PDP should give its ticket to the zone.

He also noted that zoning the presidential ticket to the Southeast was the right thing to do in the spirit of fairness and justice.

Ikpeazu argued that with PDP zoning its Chairmanship to the North, the presidential slot should go to the Southeast.

“Our zoning options have been spelt out by the PDP and it says that the chairmanship of the party should go to the North in 2023.

“As an individual, I feel that the weight of equity and justice favours the president from the South and when we come to the South, we find out which zone has not yet produced the president and give the ticket to that zone,” he told Daily Sun.
