Saraki Declares Intention To Run For Presidency
Saraki was in Makurdi with former Governor of Kogi State, Idris Wada; former National Chairman of the PDP, Kawu Baraje; Senator Suleiman Adokwe; and the Chairman of Council, Saraki for President Campaign, Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher.
“A political party that cannot organise its affairs has no business leading this country. A party that has organised its affairs is ready to lead the country and that is the PDP,” the former Kwara governor said.
Ortom, on the other hand, stated that the PDP was on a rescue mission to save Nigeria from the current All Progressives Congress (APC) government.
He also stated that the former senate president was the first from the North Central zone to declare his interest in running for president.
The former senate president also noted, via his Twitter handle, that he was ready to work with the party stakeholders in the North Central region while commending them for the warm reception.
