President Muhammadu Buhar’s Personal Assistant on Digital and New Media, Bashir Ahmad has reacted to reports making the rounds that the People’s Democratic Party, PDP has zoned its National Chairman to North.
The media had reported that the PDP Governors Forum had voted for the North to produce the party’s next national chairman.
But Bashir says the development is capable of crippling Atiku Abubakar, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Gov. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal’s presidential ambitions in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
In a post on his verified Facebook page on Thursday evening, Bashir described the development as a sign of democracy.
The post reads, “So the opposition party, PDP has zoned its national chairman to the North, this recent development may rule out the possibility of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Gov. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and others from the region from running for president under the party in 2023.
“This is democracy”!
