Twenty four hours after declaring his intention to run for President in 2019, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has obtained the Presidential nomination form of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Saraki’s Aide, Olu Onemola, made this known via his Twitter handle, on Friday afternoon.
Onemola said that the Director-General of the Saraki Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mohammed Wakil, obtained the Presidential nomination form on Saraki’s behalf.
“This afternoon, the Director-General of the Saraki Presidential Campaign Organisation, Hon. Mohammed Wakil, obtained the Presidential Nomination and Expression of Interest form from the PDP Headquarters, on behalf of Presidential Aspirant, Sen. (Dr.) Abubakar Bukola Saraki”, Olu tweeted.
Saraki however, faces a stiff challenge as the PDP parades several high profile Presidential Aspirants.
The list includes: former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar; former Governor of Jigawa State and former Foreign Affairs Minister, Sule Lamido; a former Governor of Kano State and former Minister of Education; Ibrahim Shakarau; and a former Governor of Kaduna State and Chairman of former National Caretaker Committee of the party, Ahmed Makarfi.
Others are: a former Governor of Sokoto State and former Member of the House of Representatives, Attahiru Bafarawa; Governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwambo; a former Governor of Plateau State and serving Senator, David Jang; a former Minister of Special Duties, Tanimu Turaki; a former Member of the House of Representatives, Datti Baba-Ahmed; and the Governor of Sokoto State and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal.
However, with his show of political duggedness in recent times, and his strong educational background, poise and determination to lead a greater Nigeria, Senator Bukola Saraki may be one to watch, as the 2019 Presidential race intensifies.
