A former Sokoto governor, Attahiru Bafarawa, who is aspiring for the Peoples Democratic Party ticket to contest the 2019 presidential elections says he would not leave the party if he loses in the primary election.

“I will remain in the PDP even if I do not emerge its presidential flag bearer.

“As a democrat, I allow the people’s will to prevail. In every race, there is always a winner and loser,” Bafarawa said on Monday in Minna.

Bafarawa spoke at a meeting with the Niger State delegates of the party ahead of the PDP national convention slated for October 5-6.

“I am a democrat that believes in playing according to the rules of the game. I am not a desperate politician.

“There are people that joined the party to become state governors or president. That, to me, is selfish.

“The interest of Nigeria and the PDP must come first. My personal ambition is last.

“Whether I succeed as PDP presidential aspirant or not, I will remain in the party and support the winner to ensure success,” he said.
