One of the presidential aspirants under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Attahiru Bafarawa, has dispelled fears of implosion in the opposition party over the number of politicians seeking for its presidential ticket.
The former governor of Sokoto State, who described President Muhammadu Buhari’s government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a disaster, said that the PDP aspirants will rally round whoever gets the party’s ticket to get rid of the ruling party.
Bafarawa, who stated when he spoke with newsmen shortly after addressing Ogun State executives and delegates of the PDP, as part of his ongoing campaign tour in Abeokuta, added that Nigeria under the current administration is “sick because the leadership is sick.”
“We don’t have a nation under the leadership of APC government. That is why we, in PDP, have to put our house in order and ensure that we get rid of the APC government in this country because it is a disaster to the country. This country is sick because the leadership is sick.
“We cannot allow this to continue. Forget about the number of aspirants, we are all members of one family. Whoever gets the party ticket, we will all work together and make sure we succeed in 2019.

“In trying to do damage control, we are not going to witch-hunt anybody because when you are building a nation, as a leader, you are not expected to look at the back; you have to face the problem. Nobody can do it alone. It requires our collective resolve as a people and as a nation to put the country in good place.
“I also want you to know that my presidential ambition is not a do or die affair,” he said.
There are fears that the opposition PDP may implode after its presidential primary over selfish ambitions of some of its presidential candidate who may decide to dump the party if they lose for one of the over 90 other registered political parties in other to further their ambition.
