Some stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party from the North-Central zone of the country, have endorsed Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, as their candidate for Nigerian Presidency.

According to the leader of the delegation, Iyorwuese Hagher, it was time for the geo-political zone to produce the next president of Nigeria.

He said over the years, supported other regions to enjoy the highest position in the country.

He said: “The nation right now is so divided and fragmented. We need a uniting force, which the North-Central is known for, to emerge and reunite the country again.

“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”.

Going further, he appealed to other zones in the country who had enjoyed the support of the North-Central to emerge as president.

He said the former Kwara state governor has the capacity to take the nation to greater heights.

He added: “The North Central has played a key role in the political development of Nigeria. It is expected that the rest of Nigeria will respond to our agitation as it did to a similar one in the past by the South-South zone when the country then produced Dr. Goodluck Jonathan as president,” Iyorwuese added.
