The 2019 presidential race is getting more interesting as parties have started shopping for candidates.

One of the candidates being considered is Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo, according to the Commissioner for Information in Gombe State, Umar Suleiman.

Suleiman said a powerful group within the Peoples Democratic Party is mounting pressure on Governor Dankwambo to contest as the party’s presidential candidate.

He said, “What Nigeria needs is someone that has a good financial and management background. If we decide to elect someone without a solid financial background, it will be very difficult for the person to turn around the economy of this nation.

“Many things are needed to ensure that the economy is revived. Unfortunately, the present government is saying that we are out of recession but a lot of people are still suffering.

“Something drastic needs to be done in the area of economic revival of this country. There should be fresh composition of the economic team because the economy is still sick.”
