The Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the People Democratic Party, Senator Walid Jibrin, has announced the start of search for an acceptable candidate to fly the party’s flag in the 2019 presidential election.
Mr. Jibrin while addressing a PDP youth group at Legacy House, the party’s campaign headquarters Abuja, made it clear that the search of presidential candidate was restricted to aspirants from the North.
In his view, the PDP needed to produce the best candidate to take away power from President Muhammadu Buhari.
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.”
