Former Governor of Kano state, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has today met with the leadership and delegates of the People’s Democratic Party PDP in Ekiti state.
The aim of the meeting which held in the state’s capital, Ado-Ekiti is to solicit support for his presidential ambition and ask that he be made the presidential candidate of PDP in the forthcoming general elections.
While speaking, Kwankwaso said that his ambition is based on the fact that PDP has the structure and ability to defeat the opposition party, All Progressives Congress APC at all levels of government.
“We are here because of the future of PDP and Nigeria which is currently in a critical position. Everyone is clamouring for PDP to bring back peace in all sectors of the nation. This is because our past precedents as a party speak well for us”
“Thus, come 2019 PDP will surely sack APC from Nigeria and I am ready to take up this mandate to be a major catalyst to that change”
The Senator also tagged the current situation in the country under the Buhari led administration as a total ‘mess’ plagued with economic downturn, infrastructural under development and other vices such as killings, kidnapping among others.
He further urged the delegates to vote for him enmasse while assuring that once elected into office, his administration would ensure that the country is placed on its right path to development.
