The Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, on Saturday pointed out qualities the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, should look out for before picking their Presidential candidate.

Odumakin said this while reacting to who should emerge as the candidate that can edge out President Muhammadu Buhari among the crop of aspirants contesting.

The PDP’s Presidential primary election will hold today in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Among those jostling for the Presidential ticket include former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Senator from Kano, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, former Kaduna State Governor, Ahmed Makarfi, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki among others.

He continued, “Looking at it, PDP is parading about 13 aspirants and at the end of the day, only one will emerge and from the look of things they have some very formidable names, I mean Atiku is a very strong candidate, Saraki, Kwankwaso are all strong candidates.

“I don’t think that there is short supply of good material but I wish delegates pick the best of the best who can carry out this assignment of taking over Nigeria and putting us on the right path, who can restructure the country to true federalism; a President with a very wide mind and is well connected and can be trusted among Nigerians.

”We need a president who is not parochial, not looking at his corner of the country, a President that can bring everybody on board and run an inclusive government, who can give Nigeria a fresh start and put the country on the path of productivity, and that is the kind of person the delegates should pick today.

“They should give a candidate with these characteristics so that he can take Nigeria away from the current ruinous path that we are in and put it on a fresh path”.
