Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Monday, said that the reason he is pushing for a consensus candidate among the presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party is to reduce the rancour in the process of getting the party’s flagbearer.
Saraki stated this in Makurdi when he led two other presidential aspirants on the platform of the PDP and governors of Sokoto and Bauchi States, Aminu Tambuwal and Bala Mohammed respectively, to Benue State.
The former Kwara State governor said that their visit to the state was to inform the governor, Samuel Ortom, who is a critical stakeholder, of their mission and purpose.
Responding, Governor Ortom said that, in spite of his belief in a Southern presidency, “the decision of the party on where presidency should be zoned to takes pre-eminence.”
He appreciated the team for coming up with the consensus idea and submitted that it is high time Nigerians supported younger people.
