I have no anointed candidate for Kwara governorship - Saraki

Date: 2018-08-24

The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has told his supporters in Kwara State that he does not have anointed candidates among those vying for various elective posts, including governorship in 2019 elections.

He also said henceforth, there is nothing like the new and old Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, members in the state, saying everybody has equal rights and opportunities in the party.

Saraki spoke, yesterday, while briefing PDP stakeholders across the 16 local governments in the state at the banquet hall of Kwara State government house in Ilorin.

According to him, "I have spared my time to come and personally meet you my people to make these clarifications. I am telling you directly that I have no anointed candidates for all the elective posts: governorship, Senate and all others.

"So nobody should tell you a lie that he's or she's my anointed candidates. You are hearing directly from my mouth now.

"I will not impose any candidate on you. At the right time, all of us will sit down and jointly agree on our candidates. It is whoever has been taking care of the people, and the people want, that we will all support."

Saraki also appealed to those who left the party because of the false impression they had about his coming into the party, to return, saying "there was this false claim that I will take over the political structure of the party and chase them away.

"For those who have waited, they are the testimonies to what I have just said. I want to appeal to those who left to return to PDP and let us build the party to victory in 2019 elections."
