Bauchi State PDP chairman, Haruna Saeed, has commended the loyalty and commitment of a frontline presidential aspirant of the party, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, SAN, to the party, especially during its crisis.

The chairman was speaking at the party’s secretariat in Bauchi where Turaki had gone to consult with delegates and other members ahead of the party’s presidential primary.

Alhaji Haruna Saeed recalled that the aspirant who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria mobilised lawyers to fight the case of the party at the Supreme Court besides spearheading other members to fight for the stability and survival of the party.

The state chairman who noted that presidential aspirants from different zones are jostling for the party’s mandate said that it makes a better political judgment for PDP to have its candidate from the North West zone where President Buhari the likely APC candidate comes from.

They both can test their popularity there, he said further, while the PDP stands a good chance of defeating him in other zones which are manifestly disenchanted with his misgovernance of the country. “We in Bauchi State PDP and indeed the North East are united and will provide the necessary cover for such a candidate,” he stressed.

The presidential aspirant was also at the Plateau State PDP secretariat in Jos to consult with the members.

Speaking after listening to Turaki’s speech, a former governor of the state, Ambassador Fidelis Tapgun who said that he would not talk much, told the audience that: “What you have heard, you have heard. What you have seen, you have seen. We will not make mistakes again.’Mr. President’ welcome to Plateau (state).”

The state chairman of the party and former Minister of Sports, Damishi Sango, told the aspirant: “You have the capacity. You have the qualities that we need, but we will follow the procedures outlined by the party for the selection of its candidate.”

He pointed out that the party needed a candidate who understands the country well. He lamented however that President Buhari has surrounded himself with people who have no idea about governance hence the misgovernance, saying that the quality of subordinates normally reflects the quality of their leader.

In both states, Turaki had outlined the solutions which he would provide to restore Nigeria from the problems of nepotism, insecurity, poverty, disunity and economic strangulation unleashed on the people by the APC government which he described as incompetent and clueless.

Nigerians needed to get out of APC’s ‘One Chance’ vehicle or ship that is sinking, he advised. He further advised Nigerians to transfer their anger borne out of hunger into using their Permanent Voters Cards to vote APC out of power in 2019.
