As the polity gets heightened ahead of the 2023 general polls, former Senate President Bukola Saraki has been endorsed by stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the North Central zone, as their presidential candidate.
Making the endorsement on behalf of the zone was Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher, the leader of the delegation, on Monday, in Lafia, Nassarawa State.
According to him, they needed Saraki and not a President who keeps travelling consistently for treatment and spends the country’s resources abroad.

He said, “Bukola Saraki is that young breed with wealth of experience at every cadre of governance to restore Nigeria to where we belong.
“We do not need an old man as president who will be travelling every moment for treatment and spending the country’s resources abroad.
“He appealed to other zones in the country who had enjoyed the support of the north-central to do everything within their powers to ensure that they support Saraki in 2023, saying that he has the capacity to take the nation to greater heights.”
In a related development, the Chairman of PDP North-Central, Theophilus Dakarshan, in a goodwill message expressed that the zone had contributed to the emergence of many Presidents.
He urged for the support of all Nigerians to elect someone from the North-Central zone as President in 2023.
