A presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Tanimu Turaki has asked his supporters to vote for Dr Bukola Saraki at the party’s ongoing convention in Port Harcourt, RIvers State.
Tanimu who is among the 13 aspirants jostling for the PDP presidential ticket in the 2019 elections, told delegates that if for whatever reason they don’t want to vote for him, they should vote for Saraki.
According to him, only he and Saraki, whom he described as his brother, possess the pedigree, competence and character to solve Nigeria’s problems.
He said, “People have been arguing that there are a lot of presidential aspirants in PDP. And people are laying ambush, thinking that this election process will create a lot of problem that they could benefit from.
“And all of us are speaking to ourselves as speaking to each other. And we agree that anybody who gets the ticket among us, that others will line up behind him.
“Both of us have experience. Both of us have knowledge and integrity. Both of us have character and both of us have that competence. And when you look at our antecedents, our backgrounds, our pedigree, its impeccable.
”So I say to Nigerians, particularly PDP delegates, for if for whatever reasons you don’t want me, take Abubakar Bukola Saraki as my brother.
“I believe that between the two of us, that the problems of Nigeria will be solved decisively,” he stated.
