Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje has declared that only a President from the north-central zone can rescue Nigeria from it’s current state of comatose.

Baraje, who stated this when he led a team of PDP Advocates to consult on behalf of former Senate President, Bukola Saraki for the Presidency at the PDP secretariat in Minna, Niger State, said all that is required is for the zone to adopt a consensus candidate.

He argued that in order to actualize their ambition, the north-central zone need to come out in a united front and present one candidate who can give the zone the presidency come 2023.

The former National Chairman of the PDP stated, “for the past years we have worked for other zones, we have assumed positions as national Chairman of the PDP severally and produced Presidents but this time around whether the national Chairman is from our zone, the North Central will still produce the next President.”

Baraje explained that former Senate President has the character, capacity and competency required to bring the nation out of it’s present challenges.

He insisted, “Saraki has the capacity for the job. He will not be like those who are over 70 years old and travelling abroad for months not minding what happens to the people and the nation.

“Even if the north-central produces the next party chairman, the zone will still vie for the presidency in 2023.”
