#GrowNigeria : SARAKI will emerge next Nigerian President under PDP platform – @RafiuIbrahim
The lawmaker representing Kwara South Senatorial constituency, Senator Rafiu Adebayo Ibrahim, has expressed strong confidence that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP will unseat the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, in the coming Presidential and other elections.
He also said Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki will emerge the PDP’s flag bearer and eventual winner of next year’s presidential election.
Senator Rafiu stated this while speaking at the Kwara state PDP secretariat where he had gone to submit its nomination form to retain his position as Senator representing Kwara South.
He said Nigeria needs a unifier, a bridge between the young and the old, who cuts across diverse ethnic and religious lines, and that Saraki fits perfectly into the position.
He also said his wealth of experience political and as a widely travelled figure is what Nigeria needs to move out of abject poverty where the ruling government has failed the nation.
On the uproar over Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed’s aspiration to also contest for the Senatorial seat, Rafiu who was flanked by party stalwarts said there’s no call for rancour even with Honourable Gbenga Makanjuola as the party under the leadership of Dr Saraki, will ensure that the best candidate emerges to ensure victory for the party.
