The Sokoto State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the former governor of the state, Attahiru Bafarawa to contest for the presidency in 2019.

The party took this decision after a meeting was held where it debunked insinuations by the ruling APC that there was a crack in the chapter.

The state secretary of PDP, Kabiru Aliyu said rumours of two factions in the state PDP are simply fabrications made by enemies.

“We have just finished our stakeholders meeting and resolved that all hands must be on deck to move the party forward. We equally want our members and all those that would soon defect from the APC to join us to disregard any romour of existing faction in the PDP.

“Such rumour is simply but the handiwork of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to cover up their failure and maladministration.”

Justifying his position, Kabiru said none of their members has ever defected to APC since 2015 despite losing the governorship election.

He, therefore, advised the people of the state not to be carried away by the recent financial inducement of the APC, saying they are going about spending tax payers money recklessly.

Kabiru further called on all PDP members and it’s supporters to remained focused, saying no amount of cover up will save APC come 2019.

The state chairman of PDP, Ibrahim Milgoma, gave an assurance that his party would not only win the state governorship come 2019 but also win the presidency.

Reacting to the endorsement, Attahiru Bafarawa after appreciating the party faithful said he is yet to decide whether or not to join the race to the Aso Villa.

He stated that he is waiting for God’s directive explaining that it’s only God that gives leadership.

On former president Olusegun Obasonjo’s letter that is leading political debates in the country, Bafarawa said, as a Nigerian and an elder stateman, Obasanjo is entitled to his opinions and it’s left for Buhari to heed the advice.
