PDP Set To Lure Saraki, Kwankwaso Back With 2019 Presidential Ticket
SOUTH MILWAUKEE WI. (GVE) – If Senate President, Dr. Bulola Saraki and some other top members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) agree to make a U-turn, the former Kwara State governor may become the party’s presidential flagbearer in 2019.
This much was revealed by Senator Walid Jibrin, the Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the PDP, in Abuja on Tuesday, where he also confirmed that the party was already weighing options regarding the suitability of the array of aspirants lining up for the job.
Jibrin spoke at Legacy House, the party’s campaign headquarters while addressing a PDP youth group, Ward-To-Ward that paid him a courtesy visit. He, however, clarified that the search is restricted to aspirants from the North.
He said: “We are all doing what we can in the North with all the leaders to identify who is the best candidate to rule this country. The best person that will take away power from the ruling party because 2019 is our own. 2019 is for PDP.
“We as a party, have agreed that the President of Nigeria in 2019 should come from the North. I enjoin you to support the North to bring and give you a very capable President; never-a-no-do-well President, a good qualitative President.”
“We are also expecting a big return of some of our former governors, our National Assembly members and very renowned party followers. And when this is done, which will be done very quickly, then the party will now come to its stable stand.
“We should encourage everybody who has left us to come back and reunite with us. We will not hate anyone or deprive anybody. It is a good omen for this party that we should receive people.
“We are therefore calling on the Senate President Bukola Saraki, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and all our former legislators who have left this party to come back quickly,” he added.
