– Southsouth does not have population to win PDP presidency, says Tambuwal –

In what appeared a repudiation of the zoning arrangement, Sokoto Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has told the leadership and stakeholders in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to choose between zoning of its presidential ticket and winning the election.

The Governor, who is eyeing the presidential ticket of the PDP, also said that no single zone can win the presidency alone.

Tambuwal’s position appeared a veiled response to the insistence by the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, that the PDP presidential ticket be zoned to the Southsouth region.
