PDP Must Stick To Zoning To Win 2027 Election – Bode George

Former National Deputy Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, has said that in order for the party to prevail in the 2027 election, it must adhere to its basic principle of power rotation between the North and South.

Bode George made the known while feeding questions from newsmen on Thursday during his national speech titled “My Thoughts on The State of Our Country in the Last 25 Years: A Time to Chart A New Direction.”

The elder statesman’s comment was in reaction to the former Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)

He was responding to remarks made recently by former vice president Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s 2023 presidential candidate, saying he would give up his bid in 2027 if the party chooses Mr Peter Obi, the candidate from the Labour Party.

He said: “Our party has a grundnorm. The constitution of our party as compiled by the founding father, Baba Ekwueme (former Vice President Alex Ekwueme) and his team will remain a guiding light.


“We have paid a big price for not following the rule. We have made mistakes, let us learn. It has cost us too much.

“Section 7 subsection 3C states very clearly that the party must adhere to the zoning and rotation procedures for party positions and elective positions simultaneously for things to work well.”
