The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday denied zoning its 2023 presidential ticket, describing such reports as misleading.

The opposition party in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, said zoning will be based on consultations, urging those behind the fake news to desist.

“The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been drawn to comments and speculations from certain individuals claiming that our party has zoned its presidential ticket to a particular part of the country,” the statement said.

“This is completely misleading as it does not in any way represent the position of our party.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP emphatically and unequivocally states that it has not zoned it presidential ticket to any part of the country.

“The PDP is a political party founded on democratic principles and every action of the party, including zoning, is based on extensive consultations, discussions and consideration of all the issues as well as the various tendencies and interests across the nation, with the main objective of ensuring that the unity, peaceful co-existence and development of our nation are reinforced and promoted.

“We therefore urges Nigerians, our teeming members and supporters to completely disregard the unfounded zoning claims as being peddled. Our party also cautions those behind the claims to desist forthwith.

“The PDP thanks Nigerians across board for the overwhelming interest they have in our party as their sure platform to rescue and rebuild our nation from misrule and urges them to remain united and focused as we join forces for the task ahead.

A boy with three holes in the heart, Ramadan Tolani, urgently needs N6 million for chest infection surgery.

The surgery, according to medical experts, could only be done either at the Babcock University Teaching Hospital or India. However, the family considering the financial constraints of obtaining a visa and other logistics, resorted to doing the surgery at Babcock university here in Nigeria.

The young boy according to a medical report signed by the management of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), is currently on anti failure medication.

The report further implores Nigerians to accord him necessary assistance.

Ramadan was found to be centrally diagnosed with oxygen saturation values in room air between 77-45 per cent.

“Examination of the cardiovascular systems revealed a heart rate of 135bmp; with a prude 3/6 pansystolic murmur loudest at the left lower sternal border.”

The report revealed that echocardiography was done on January 6, 2021, and it revealed that Ramadan has three holes in the heart namely;  Secundum ASD, right partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection and moderate PAH.

It further states that he was presented on account of recurrent chest infections noticed from birth. Mrs Mayalleke Tolani,  Ramadan’s mother while pleading with Nigerians to come to her aid, explained how she has been facing endless difficulties since she gave birth to the boy. Last November, LASUTH told Tolani her son was due for the operation.

If you are touched by Ramadan’s plight, please send your donations to: Bank – Wema, Account Number – 0253889676 Account Name – Ramadan Shedrack Mayaleke
