The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has finally issued a statement on rumours that Former leader, Goodluck Jonathan was nursing a 2023 Presidential ambition.

The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus on Thursday stated that Jonathan was free to contest for the presidential ticket of the party pending the outcome of the zoning arrangement of the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Secondus, who stated this yesterday at a media interaction to mark the three years anniversary of the National Working Committee (NWC) said;

"I stand by my position that the Gov Bala-led committee is still working. They are coming out with a report on why we lost and by the time they finish, we will take a decision and the decision is not for the National Working Committee but for the entirety of our party.

"And I believe that whoever is interested in the 2023 election, including the former president, may be the chances are there because the PDP is a party of all. Everybody will have that opportunity but in clear terms, we have not taken any decision to give anybody ticket for now".
