South-East Presidential aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have called on the party to zone its ticket to the region.
Naija News reports that the aspirants made the demand while speaking to newsmen after their meeting in Abuja on Saturday.
Those at the meeting were Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, Peter Obi, Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa and Dr Nwachukwu Anakwenze.
Speaking on behalf of the presidential aspirants, Anyim stated that they have agreed to work together as a team and that we will work together to ensure that a South Easterner emerges as PDP flag bearer.
“We intend to consult with other zones on this issue and it is based on fairness and equity.
“In doing so, it is important to note that we have always supported other zones and we now expect them to reciprocate,” he said.
“It is to our knowledge that more aspirants may have obtained forms under PDP and we hope they will join us later.”
He however refused to disclosed if they were working towards presenting a consensus candidate from among them.
Anyim said, “When we get to the bridge, we will cross it. We will work together in the interest of the Party, in the interest of the nation and in the interest of the South East.”
On if South-East PDP governors are in support of the meeting, he said the aspirants were not in the position to speak for the governors.
