A political support group, Saraki Is Coming Door To Door, has applauded the performance of former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, at the just-concluded national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, saying the Waziri of Ilorin Emirate remains a hero.
Mr Saraki came third at the PDP presidential primary election that was won by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who polled 371 votes to emerge the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.
The Coordinator of the group, Umar Faringado Kazaure, in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday, said Mr Saraki performed excellently well at the presidential primary exercise given the odds against him.
According to Mr Kazaure, the former Senate President is not desperate politician, especially given his resolve to support the winner of the party’s flagbearer.
He said: “Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki came third in the PDP presidential primaries. We are proud of him because he performed excellently well against the backdrop of the odds against him.
“He is a hero and we believe tomorrow is another day. He is one person Nigeria needs at the moment in order to bridge the leadership gap in the country.
“However, we commend Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki’s sportsmanship at the exercise. He has shown the world that he is not desperate politician.
“As a real party man that he is, he expressed his readiness to support the winner of the primary election,” the Coordinator stated.
