The details of the second meeting between former Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal and his Bauchi colleague, Bala Mohammed, have emerged.
Naija News recalls that the trio met last week in Bauchi regarding a consensus arrangement for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 2023 presidential ticket.
In a chat with reporters after the meeting, Saraki said the purpose of the meeting was to show leaders and members of the party that the aspirants are united.
He stated that one of the decisions taken at the meeting is to reach out to other aspirants in order to adopt a consensus presidential candidate for the party.
Saraki said: “It is important as stakeholders and as key leaders of this party that we’re seen to be united. Some of the decisions we’ve taken today also are that we’re going to embark on reaching out to other aspirants.
“We’ve already, of course, identified senior leaders of the party and also other aspirants across the country and also stakeholders, some of their former colleagues and governors. We’re also going to reach out to all parts of this process of bringing us together uniting the party ahead.
“The major issue and message we want to put across to Nigerians are that the country is larger and bigger than our individual interests.
“We’re committed to the process. Because we believe that once we unite as PDP, we’ll lay the foundation there for a strong party that will help in delivering Nigerians from the challenges that they’re facing now and prepare for the country to be much stronger as we go ahead.”
