The former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has visited the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Niger State to solicit for their support ahead of the party’s national convention.

He said that Saraki and Mohammed have also been mandated to work together for further consultations and come up with one consensus candidate.

Meanwhile, Saraki, while addressing supporters at the PDP state secretariat in Minna, the state capital, said that it was the time for North-Central to produce successor for President Muhhamadu Buhari come 2023.

Saraki, was accompanied on the visit to solicit for the support of Niger delegates ahead of the PDP national convention by the former National Secretary/ Acting Chairman of the party, Alhaji Kawu Baraje, Senator Suleiman Adokwe among others.

Addressing supporters, Saraki said, “What the country needed at the moment is president that will stand for and serve the collective interests of all, not a president that is serving the interest of a particular tribe, region or religion.”

Also, former Governor of Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, described Saraki as a man that has the interest of the country and the north-central in particular at heart irrespective of religion, tribe, ethnicity or political inclinations.
