The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commenced profiling of its 2019 presidential aspirants in order to ‎have the best candidate emerged through its primaries.

The party is making efforts to settle for a formidable, dogged and credible party chieftain who has the clout and acceptability to face the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the next general elections.

‎Speaking on Tuesday while receiving members of the PDP Ward-to-Ward group in Abuja, the Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman, Senator Walid Jibrin said the search was extended to those who left the party in the past.

Jibrin, who described the return of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to the PDP as a good omen, also called on former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Senate  President Bukola Saraki ‎and many others who left the party to return. 

The BoT called on party supporters across the country to play key roles towards ensuring that only a credible stalwart was fielded as the party's presidential candidate.

“All of us as a party agreed that the President of Nigeria should come from the North. I enjoin you to support the North to bring and give you a very capable President; not a never-do-well President but a good, qualitative President.

“We are all doing what we can in the North with all the leaders to identify who is the best candidate to rule this country, the best person that will take away power from the ruling party because 2019 is our own; 2019 is for the PDP.

“The return of Atiku to this party, whether we like it or not, is a good omen for the party. By boldly coming back to his home, it is a good omen.

“We are therefore calling on the Senate President Bukola Saraki, Kwankwaso and all our former legislators who left this party to come back quickly. When they come back, then we shall together take a look at the issue of leadership. The issue of who wants to become the President of Nigeria will now depend on all of us. We all will decide who will be the President of Nigeria,” Jibrin said.

Chairperson of the PDP Ward-to-Ward, Hon. Ada Fredrick‎  assured that the group would rely on the BoT at all time in its bid to mobilise Nigerians of all walks of life to return to the PDP in order to reclaim power in 2019. (Daily Trust)
