2019: PDP Woos Saraki, Tambuwal With Automatic Return

Saraki and Wike
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is “ready to bend backwards for the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki if he is ready to defect to APC,” a member of the Board of Trustees of the party, who craved for anonymity has revealed

Saraki, according to the source, has been “advised to forego his presidential ambition” and PDP “won’t mind returning him as the President of the Senate because the performance of the 8th Senate, which he is heading, has been outstanding in terms of bills already passed, The Nation reports

“You can see why PDP is giving him a major backing. But we have not got any commitment from him.”

Saraki has however not shown any sign of defection from PDP to APC in spite of the fact that the main opposition party is his major pillar of survival in the Senate.

The source ruled out the possibility of the party giving its presidential ticket to Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State who is being actively wooed by some PDP governors.


The source said the best the PDP can offer Tambuwal is re-election ticket as governor.

“Except for a few governors who wanted us to woo Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal from APC based on his democratic credentials, most of our leaders and governors are not keen on him because of his likely imposition by some PDP leaders,” he said.

“We are open to Tambuwal but let him go and seek re-election as governor on the platform of PDP if he is fed up with APC.

“Tambuwal is a presidential material for the future even though Wike will not want to hear this from our governors and leaders.”
