Election 2023: North-Central PDP Endorses Saraki For Presidency
Senator Bukola Saraki Some stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party from the North-Central of Nigeria has endorsed the former Senate President, Bukola Saraki for the presidency in the 2023 general elections.
The leader of the delegation, Iyorwuese Hagher, while speaking on Monday said it is time for the geopolitical zone to produce the next president of Nigeria having supported other regions over the years.
He said, “The nation right now is so divided and fragmented, we need a uniting force which the north-central is known for, to emerge and reunite the country again.
Hagher called on other zones in the country to support the region to produce the next president and support Bukola Saraki to emerge in 2023, adding that he has the capacity to take the nation to greater heights.
“The North Central has played a key role in the political development of Nigeria. It is expected that the rest of Nigeria will respond to our agitation as it did to a similar one in the past by the South-South zone when the country then produced Dr Goodluck Jonathan as president.”
He called on other zones in the country to support someone from the zone as President in 2023.
“The North Central zone had in the past given its unflinching support to other zones. We now appeal to them to reciprocate same to us,” he said.
Recall that the former Kwara governor announced his intention to contest the presidency during an official visit to Governor Samuel Ortom, elders and members of the State Working Committee, SWC, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Benue State.
He added that the North Central Zone had paid its due by working so hard to keep the country together as one united entity insisting that it is time the presidency goes to the region.
