Former Senate President, Sen. Pius Anyim, Saturday stated that he will run for the position of the President in 2023, whether the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP zones its presidential slot to the South-East zone or not.

Anyim made the declaration on Saturday in an interview with journalists, in Abuja.

The Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation noted that the party’s national convention would herald the commencement of political activities in the party adding that the time was ripe for him to indicate interest to run for exalted position.

According to Anyim, “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 declarations to enable the present administration concentrate on governance. Such calls resurfaced in the early part of 2021 and I choose to be quiet over the issue.

“We presently have less that 18 months to the next elections and I feel the time was ripe to indicate my interest.”

He noted that the zoning committee constituted by the party, was only saddled with zoning party positions and not elective positions ahead of 2023.

“Zoning of such positions was deferred but nothing stops any one from the south east zone from contesting the presidency even if it was 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 set back.

“The party members are presently focussed and determined to reclaim power with one spirit,” he added.

Anyim said that despite the party’s seeming infraction with its former Chairman, Chief Uche Secondus, he remained a friend to several members.

“Secondus is particularly my friend and many other members of the party, and we do not have any problem with him.”
