Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Anyim Pius Anyim

Former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim has vowed that he will contest for presidency in 2023 whether the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  will zone it to South East or not.

Anyim, who spoke to newsmen today,  October 30, said: “we currently have less that 18 months to the next elections, and I feel the time is ripe to indicate my interest.”

Anyim,  who was also Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) said that the party’s national convention would signal the commencement of its political activities soon.

“Posters of my presidential bid and agitations by groups for me to contest flooded the social media in 2020 and I disassociated myself from such calls.

“I felt that it was too early for such a declaration, to enable the present administration concentrate on governance.

“Such calls resurfaced in the early part of 2021 and I chose to be quiet over the issue.”

According to him the zoning committee of the PDP instituted by the party was only saddled with zoning party positions and not other positions.

“Zoning of such positions was deferred but nothing stops any one from South-East Zone from contesting the presidency even if it is not zoned to it.

“The most important thing is that the party’s national convention is a sort of rebirth for a group of people who have recovered from a setback.

“The party members are  focused and determined.”
