STRATEGIC 2019!!! PDP Shops For A Serving Northern Governor As Presidential Candidate, Adopts Another High Ranking APC Governor As Option B

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is considering the option of fielding a serving Governor as its Presidential candidate for the 2019 general elections.

A PDP Chieftain who spoke on condition of anonymity, explained that the party needs someone who would be covered by Executive immunity, till May 29, 2019.

The party Chieftain, revealed further that the party was exploring several other options as well, but that getting a sellable serving Governor would reduce a lot of stress.

‎”You cannot rule out the possibility of the PDP fielding a serving Governor, but we are being painstaking in the process of selecting our Presidential candidate”, the party Chieftain said.

“The overall objective is to get that person that can defeat President Buhari; someone who will not be arrested later for alleged corruption. So we are exploring several options, including fielding a serving Governor from the North”, he added.

Post-Nigeria authoritatively gathered that the PDP has only two serving Governors from the North, that is, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe State, who is rounding up his second term, and Darius Ishaku of Taraba State, who is in his first term.

The PDP had zoned its Presidential ticket to the North, even as some sources stated that its searchlight for a credible candidate would go beyond party affiliation.

A source stressed that Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State, is also being considered for the ticket, on grounds of his youthful age and immunity.

Tambuwal is still in the All Progressives Congress, APC, but insiders further disclosed that the PDP Leaders were mounting pressure on him to return back to the PDP, banking on the grievances of the New PDP members within the APC.

The PDP Spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a text message on whether the party was shopping for serving Governors said: “PDP is open, and our party will create the requisite enabling environment for all aspirants seeking to be President on the platform of our party.”
