2023 Elections: PDP ought to change strategy, it’ll be immoral for the north to want to represent the party – Afegbu

Jan. 26, 2022

A member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kassim Afegbua, has said that Nigerians are tired of seeing the same set of people contesting for president and that his party ought to change its strategy ahead of the coming 2023 elections.

Afegbua who was a guest on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Tuesday, said this while discussing the party’s potential candidates, particularly former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who was the candidate for the PDP in 2019.

“It will be immoral for the north to want to represent the PDP as candidate of the party and at a time when a northerner will be finishing eight years,” he said.

“I was specific about the aspiration of a man who represented the party in 2019 elections. I said we are tired of seeing old faces.

“From 1990 to 2019, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has been contesting for President. There’s nothing wrong with that but the PDP has to change its strategy”.

According to Afegbua, the party should, this time, consider a zoning the presidency to the south.

He said the change is necessary for the sake of political stability.
