Presidency: Zoning will not be against Atiku – Committee.


The Technical Committee, Atiku Abubakar Presidential Project, has expressed confidence that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) zoning arrangement would not be against the presidential ambition of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

The Chairman of the committee, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, disclosed this while speaking with newsmen shortly after submitting Abubakar’s expression of interest and nomination forms for Presidential Election at the PDP National Secretariat, Abuja, on Monday.

Asked what was the position of Abubakar about zoning the PDP presidential ticket, Dokpesi said that Abubakar had nothing against zoning.

“By the special grace of God, when we get to the bridge, we will cross it.

“Am not aware of any internal problems in the PDP. No crisis whatsoever. PDP is one big family; we shall all be together as brothers and sisters.

“Definitely, we have nothing against whatever the party will decide, but the zoning will not be against us,” he said.

Dokpesi said that forms submitted on behalf of Abubakar were duly completed and signed.

Also speaking during the submission of the forms, a former senator representing Kogi West, Sen. Dino Melaiye, described Abubakar as a man with multiple competencies and a unifier.

Melaiye also said that God had revealed to him that Abubakar would be president of Nigeria.

“We are here to submit to you the form of a Nigerian with multiple competences, indoctrinated with the art of civil administration and the rudiments of politics, the only unifier.

“Atiku was the first to pick his form and the first to submit his form,” Melaiye said.
