Chairman Media Committee of Abubakar Bukola Saraki Presidential Campaign and a Former Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe says the Senate President, Bukola Saraki was going to emerge as the People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential flag bearer for 2019 presidential election on Saturday
Okupe stated this in a statement made available to newsmen in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
He described Saraki as the shinning light in the political firmament of the PDP and maintained that Saraki was going to win convincingly.
The Statement reads:
“We have arrived the garden city where the presidential candidate of PDP will be elected. It is a great event that will determine and shape the future of Nigeria.
“He is a great, confident, courageous, competent and cerebral personality.
“He is a shinning light in the political firmament of the PDP. Having gone round the country with Dr. Saraki, I am amazed at the level of his acceptability in virtually every zone of the nation.
“Abubakar Bukola Saraki has become a national phenomenon and his ideology and policy to grow Nigeria has become a doctrine especially amongst young Nigerians
“Even some of the Northern elders are fully in support of Bukola Saraki because many of them feel that his late father lived and died for the north.
“When there were signs of disunity in the north, the late Oloye traversed the length and breath of the north to bring everyone together. Many people in the north, particularly elders now feel that it is about time to pay back the late Olusola Saraki with a good measure by supporting his son.
“We are here to compete fairly and contest with all seriousness. We recognize the obvious potentials of fellow aspirants.
“Virtually every of PDP aspirant is incomparable with leadership of the incumbent political party. Bukola Saraki has a wide range of support within the rank and file of the PDP.
“A clear majority of serving state governors in the PDP are backing Bukola Saraki. And this is a very determinant factor on who emerges the party’s flag bearer on Sunday.
“The message of Saraki, which is inclusiveness, equity and the programme to grow Nigeria is unrivaled and this is what he has consistently preached all over the nation. This has no doubt found great acceptability amongst the delegates and the people of Nigeria,”
