Former Vice President and 2019 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday told the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party that it could decide what rules govern the party but Nigerians have the final say on who becomes the president.

He made the assertion in his opening remarks at the commencement of the 94th regular meeting of the PDP highest decision-making body in Abuja, saying that where a person comes from has never been a problem for the Nigerian electorate.

His remarks came against the background of the consideration of the Governor Ifeanyi Uguanyi-led committee report on zoning by the NEC, which threw the office of the national chairman of the party to the north.

He observed that the PDP should be focused on having power back in 2023, pleading with the party leaders to revert to its well-known ways of resolving internal challenges.

The former vice president said: “The People’s Democratic Party has the right to determine its rules on how the party should be governed. The people of Nigeria also have the right to determine who governs them.

“Where the president comes from, has never been the problem of Nigeria. There is no such thing as a president from Southern Nigeria or a president from Northern Nigeria. There is only one president from Nigeria, for Nigeria, by Nigerians.

“Talking about inclusion, I would like to see a new national working committee of our party, our great party that has sizable numbers of our youths and woman.
