Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode Goerge, says the party decided to shun the zoning agreement for its presidency ticket for peace and unity of the party.
Mr George, who is also a member of the party’s Board of Trustees, made this revelation on Saturday at the venue of the PDP special national convention.
He said that the party never removed the rotation and zoning principle from its constitution.
“I want to state that the party has never been in this situation and that is why I said it is an experimentation and there was a caveat because everybody thought that the zoning and rotation principle has been removed from the constitution, no.
“We said for the unity and peace of the party let everybody go and try their luck. That’s why we are in this situation. I don’t pray that it will be a matter of north and south because that will be divisive.”
