A presidential aspirant at the ongoing Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, convention in Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki has endorsed his co-contender Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
In a video obtained by Naija News, Turaki, has asked PDP delegates to vote for Saraki if, for whatever reasons, they reject him. He said only him and Saraki possess the pedigree, competence and character to solve Nigeria’s problems.
Turaki said, should the delegates reject him, that they should however, not hesitate to vote for Saraki whom he said is his brother.
According to him, “People have been arguing that there are a lot of presidential aspirants in PDP. And people are laying ambush, thinking that this election process will create a lot of problem that they could benefit from.
“And all of us are speaking to ourselves as speaking to each other
“And we agree that anybody who gets the ticket among us, that others will line up behind him.
“Both of us have experience. Both of us have knowledge and integrity.
“Both of us have character and both of us have that competence. And when you look at our antecedents, our backgrounds, our pedigree, its impeccable.
”So I say to Nigerians, particularly PDP delegates, for if for whatever reasons you don’t want me, take Abubakar Bukola Saraki as my brother.
“I believe that between the two of us, that the problems of Nigeria will be solved decisively,” he concluded.
"If for whatever reason you did nt vote for me as the @OfficialPDPNig Presidential Flag bearer, Vote for my brother @bukolasaraki "- Taminu Turaki plead with PDP delegates to vote Bukola Saraki#PDPConventionPHC
