Former Vice president, Atiku Abubakar has exercised his franchise in the ongoing PDP congress in Yola, Adamawa State.
The rank and file of the PDP trooped to the Yola to decide on who would lead the party forward as they are set to battle the APC for the 2023 presidential elections.
Taking to his Twitter page, he shared photos of himself casting his vote with the top PDP officials all in a queue to exercise their franchise.
Some netizens slid under the comment section and tried to coerce him into voting for their candidates.
He wrote: I just cast my vote at the Adamawa State @OfficialPDPNig Congress in Yola.
Meanwhile, It has been alleged that permutations over the 2023 elections have overtaken the party’s ongoing consideration of zoning of offices.
It has been revealed that some frequent presidential aspirants from the North, consisting ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, ex-President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and ex-Governor Sule Lamido are advocating for the retention of the 2017 formula which will make the South occupy the National Chairman’s seat.
A source spoke in anonymity with the Nation and disclosed that the movers and shakers within the PDP are scheming over the next step in the chairmanship position of the party.
The source said: “The truth is that calculations over the chances of PDP in 2023 are delaying the zoning of party offices. There are many intrigues on zoning because the shape of the party offices will define the presidential slot of the party.
“Forget the assuaging comments of the Chairman of the Zoning Committee, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, that his panel has no mandate to decide on zoning of President and Vice President tickets. Zoning of party offices determines the presidential and vice presidential slots.
