The senate President Bukola Saraki who’s hope of becoming Nigeria President 2019 was dashed at the PDP presidential primaries in Port Harcourt on October 7th.
Saraki, who represents Kwara Central District in the Senate, was among the 13 presidential aspirants of the party. He came third at the party’s Presidential primaries which was held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The PDP had held the senatorial primaries before that of the presidential primary
The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has sent Senate President, Saraki’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission as a senatorial candidate for Kwara central senatorial district in the 2019 general election.
Investigations by one of our correspondents in Abuja showed that Saraki’s name was used to replace the name of one Ope, whose name was initially filed as the PDP candidate for the senatorial district.
It was learnt that Saraki is being positioned to return as the President of the Senate in 2019 by the PDP, if former Vice President Atiku Abubakar wins the presidential election.
