A former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh, has called on the 2023 presidential election zoning committee members of the party to allow all aspirants to contest regardless of their states.
Metuh, who stated this in an open letter to the committee, said nothing should take the PDP back to the “period of the arrogance of power especially as we are in opposition”.
According to him, there is a need for the PDP to tread carefully and be sensitive on how to tackle the North where the All Progressives Congress controls 14 states as opposed to only four states by PDP.
“In 2015, we adopted sole candidacy and dampened the morale of members to openly campaign for the PDP,” he hinted.
The letter read part, “History beckons on each and every one of you to make a decision that will not only stabilise our party but also showcase the readiness of our party for the 2023 elections.
