The Peoples Democratic party,(PDP)has said that Former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is free to contest as President come 2023,under the Party,even though it is yet to zone the position to any region of the country
According to the party, it awaits a report by the Bala- led committee,before it can take a decision on that ,but however said the former President and any interested Nigerian have a chance for the presidency under the PDP.
This was made known by the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus,during a media parley on Thursday in Abuja.
Speaking further on if the former Jonathan would be brought to run on the platform of the party,the Chairman said once the committee submits its report,those interested will be at liberty to throw their hats in the ring.
He said: “I stand by my position that the Governor Bala-led committee is still working, they are coming out with a report on why we lost and by the time they finish, we will take decisions and the decision is not for the National Working Committee but for the entirety of our party.
“I believe that whoever is interested in the 2023 election, including the former President, the chances are there, because the PDP is a party of all.
“Everybody will have that opportunity but in clear terms, we have not taken any decision to give anybody the ticket for now.”
