Senator Bukola Saraki, the former President of the Nigerian Senate and a presidential candidate on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform, has revealed that he and other PDP aspirants are currently working on developing a consensus presidential candidate capable of addressing Nigeria’s current insecurity.
He claimed this during a closed-door meeting with Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu at his country-home Umuobiakwa village in the state’s Obingwa Local Government Area, among other major PDP presidential hopefuls.
His comment was contained in a press release issued on Friday in Umuahia, the state capital, and made accessible to reporters.
The contenders gathered in Abia to discuss the possibilities of a consensus presidential candidate for the largest opposition party.
Other presidential aspirants who visited the Abia Governor alongside Saraki were the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal; Senator Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State and Dr Mohammed Hayatudeen.
Saraki maintained that the party is driven by the determination to turn Nigeria around and also expressed optimism that the PDP would emerge victorious in the upcoming general election in the country in 2023.
Asked why ex-Nigerian vice president, Atiku Abubakar was not in the delegation of the party’s presidential aspirants, Saraki, also a former Governor of Kwara State, explained that, “he is fully part of the mission and received full briefings on their consensus mission”.
According to the release by Ememanka, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu was joined in receiving the PDP Presidential aspirants by a delegation led by the State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon Christopher Ekweremadu and a foremost industrialist, Elder Raymond Aliga.
