PDP presidential candidates meet to reach an agreement in Abuja

The presidential hopefuls of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) gathered in Abuja on Thursday to discuss the prospects of generating a consensus candidate ahead of the 2023 presidential election. 

Dr Bukola Saraki, the immediate past Senate President, and the governors of Sokoto and Bauchi states, Aminu Tambuwal and Bala Mohammed, met in Abuja to discuss the issue. 

“We are in this nation today, Saraki told media after the meeting, and it’s critical as stakeholders that major leaders of this party (PDP) are seen together.” 

“One of the choices we made today is that we are going to start reaching out to other applicants.”  

“Of course, recognized top party leaders and other hopefuls around the nation, as well as past colleagues; therefore, we will reach out to all sections on this process of bringing us together.” 

“We are dedicated to that process because we feel that once we unify as the PDP, who would create the foundation, thus a strong party, will help in delivering Nigerians from the issues that they are now suffering in order to make the nation much stronger as we move forward,” Saraki added. 

He, however, refuted the suggestion that the meeting was a ploy to prevent any hopefuls from receiving the party’s ticket, saying individuals who spread such rumors are those who see nothing positive.  

“As we previously stated, we are not locking anyone out; rather, we are unifying everyone in the cause of our country.” 

“You’ll see when we start going around. As we already stated, we would meet with all other party aspirants,” he stated emphatically.
