2023: We are ready for the consensus candidate

Former Senate President Bukola Saraki says that all People’s Democratic Party Northern PDP presidential hopefuls are poised for a consensus candidate during the party’s no-frills primaries. He provided security in Bauchi on Sunday when Saraki and Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, also a PDP presidential candidate, paid a consultation visit to Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State. Addressing the media on behalf of the three presidential hopefuls, Saraki said they felt it necessary as party stakeholders to get together, exchange ideas and see how things could work better between them. He said: “In doing so, we come together and discuss that for the 2023 ahead of us, the unity and stability of the country and the growth of the country are more important than individual ambitions. “We also come together to fight for the need for us to work together. We believe that the three of us are working together in harmony, committed and with a lot of energy, there will be great hope for this country to move forward. “We appreciate that all three of us have shown aspirations to lead this country, but we also realize that we are all capable, competent and fit to lead this country. “At the end of the day, it is only one person who will lead this country in 2023; and we also resolved that we’re going to work closely together to make sure we reach a consensus agreement among the three of us on how to move forward to lead this country.
