The presidential ambition of former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has received the blessing of the Federal Capital Territory chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The endorsement on Saturday by the FCT chapter of the PDP is coming on the heels of similar endorsements by the Benue, Nasarawa and Niger states chapters within the last seven days.
Shortly before the announcement, party leaders from the FCT observed that the PDP needs a candidate from the North Central to win the 2023 Presidency, arguing that the North Central zone deserves a shot at the presidency because, despite the immense sacrifice made by sons and daughters of the zone in order to build the PDP, restore and sustain democracy since 1999, no one from the zone has been considered for the top job.
During the endorsement meeting, a chieftain of the party from the FCT, Alhaji Ogah Doma, moved the motion for the adoption of Saraki as the choice of the North Central for the PDP Presidential ticket; the motion was seconded and unanimously adopted by all present.
PDP stalwarts such as the FCT PDP chairman, Sunday Zakka, Senator Sulaiman Adokwe, and Dr Musa Ahmadu amongst others were present at the meeting.
