Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has disclosed intention to contest for the 2023 Presidential election.
He revealed this during a courtesy visit to Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, in Makurdi, Benue State.
It was gathered that Saraki, who described Ortom as a good party man, was in Makurdi with former Governor of Kogi State, Idris Wada, former National Chairman of the PDP, Kawu Baraje, Senator Suleiman Adokwe, and the Chairman of Council, Saraki for President Campaign, Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher.
While speaking during his visit, he said: “A political party that cannot organise its affairs has no business leading this country. A party that has organised its affairs is ready to lead the country and that is the PDP,”
Ortom, on his part said the PDP would save Nigerians from the suffering den, which the APC had put them in.
He also said that Saraki was the first from the North Central zone to declare his interest in running for president.
Meanwhile, the former governor of Kwara State, who spoke via his Twitter handle, said he was ready to work with the party stakeholders in the North Central region while commending them for the warm reception.
He wrote: “I thank Governor Ortom and all our party stakeholders and supporters in the state for the warm reception, and I look forward to working with them to foster the growth and development of our party and the nation.”
