Former Peoples Democratic Party vice-presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi on Thursday disowned a group sharing flyers campaigning him for the 2023 presidential election.
Obi, a former Anambra State governor, tweeted he had neither contracted nor authorised anyone to promote him as a presidential aspirant.
“I am not in any way connected to, neither have I contracted/authorised anybody or organisation to promote the sharing of flyers which assume my intent to contest for office in 2023.
“As a faithful party man, I am not one to jump the gun on a matter the party is yet to give final directives. I will abide by the final position of the party on the issue.
“For now, my focus remains to advocate for the restoration of security, eradication of poverty, creation of jobs and provision of other productive ventures for the country’s unemployed youths, improving education and making health care accessible in the country”, Obi wrote.
The PDP recently approved the recommendation of its zoning committee that the next national chairman of the party should come from the north.
The party however kept mum on where to zone its presidential ticket.
The zoning committee chaired by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State recently recommended the zoning of the position of the party’s national chairman to the north.
It also recommended that other offices in the national working committee (NWC) be swapped between the northern and southern zones.
The party’s national convention comes up 30-31 October.
