2023 Presidency: Mass Defection Looms In South East PDP by odiks: 3:16pm On Nov 15
***Zone to reject VP slot

Ahead of the 2023 Presidential elections, some prominent leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from South East geopolitical zone have threatened to dump the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, if the presidential ticket was not ceded to the zone.

The PDP leaders also vowed not to take vice presidential position from the party, saying that anyone from the zone that accepts vice presidential ticket will be tagged as an enemy of the zone.


A former governor from the zone who spoke to Vanguard on condition of anonymity said that South East has been faithful to the PDP since 1998 despite what happened to the late former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekweme at the convention in Jo’s.

According to him, “If the PDP refuses to zone the 2023 Presidential ticket to the South East, we will be left with no other option than to leave the party.

“We are solidly behind the position of our brother and Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. David Umahi. We have supported the party (PDP) and it will be unfortunate if the party decides to take our support for granted.

“We have also vowed that we are not going to accept Vice Presidential ticket from the party and any son or daughter from the zone that accepts to be vice to anyone will be tagged as an enemy of the zone.

“I can also assure you that if the PDP refuses to zone its Presidential ticket to the South East and Governor Umahi leaves, other governors, members of the National Assembly and key stakeholders of the party from South East will also leave.

“You will be surprised with the kind of tsunami that will hit the PDP if it does not handle the issue well. There must be equity and fairness. We should learn how to reward our loyal and dedicated members.

“From the signals we are getting, the APC appears to be ready to zone its presidential ticket to South East and we cannot leave such gesture and follow a party that doesn’t appreciate your loyalty.

“You know that the APC had promised to consider zoning its presidential candidate for 2023 to South East if President Muhammadu Buhari was reelected in 2019. You also know that the President is an upright man. We have the conviction that he will ensure that the APC cedes the position to the zone.

“Some people are already mobilizing for #EndVP protest in South East and we are going to ensure that we make resources available to that effect. It’s going to be a collective thing. And I am assuring you that the country will not regret having a President of South East extraction come 2023.”

Finally, the Phoenix is rising!!

When I created a thread about this about three months ago, they called me names. Now it is happening!!

It is only natural that the East be rewarded for their decades old loyalty. Pdp no try at all.

Are people still sold on trying to differentiate between APC and PDP?

Only backward thinkers believe either party holds the key to the improvement of the nation's woes.

The reason-ables know the only way out is self-determination and eventual exit from a country built on lies, deceit and on a neo-colonial foundation.

Anything asides that is a carrot being waggled in the front of an ass.

STOP BEING DONKEYS, YOU SOUTHERNERS!

Let them defect from now till 2023, the Presidency is not for them to smell. Not at all.

Let the Igbos stay in the PDP whom they have given all their love and dedication to for the past 21 years.

Is it the APC whom they tag a Yoruba party that they want to come and join or what?

Or do Igbos now prefer to work with the 'Yoruba slaves' or 'Fulani killers?'

Please stay in the PDP. PDP is Igbo, Igbo is PDP.

Imagine working hard for someone for 21 years and that person never considered you for once for anything good. grin

That is the relationship between the Igbos and PDP. The best PDP sees them for is party chairmanship and Senate Presidency.

The SW & SS got their fair share of the Presidency, 8 and 5 years respectively. SS also got 3 years VP and NE got 8 years. All without noise, emotional blackmail and gragra.

Politics is by being strategic and not by gragra.

The reward for loyalty shouldn't always be playing second fiddle to the North.

For the first time, the South East is growing some balls and asking for what's due them for their many years of unalloyed support to a party that has always taken their support for granted and treated them as lesser members.

Kudos to Umahi for being bold enough to make the first move that may finally bring PDP back to their senses.

I also like the condition given to the PDP this time around: it's the top job or nothing!

PDP remains the party where SE can "fairly" get the presidential ticket.
They should rather remain in PDP but be strongly united to fight for what's theirs. If by then, it doesn't seem feasible, they should use the unity to negotiate sthelse from another platform (as a plan B kinda). PDP can't achieve anything without SE&SS.
They should extend the alignment to SS tho.
Without being biased, PDP's ticket come 2023 should be micro zoned to the SE but who will do this in politics? They should fight for what's theirs.
