Abubakar Kawu Baraje, a Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said only a President from the North-Central zone of the country can rescue Nigeria from it’s current state of standstill.

Baraje stated this while leading a team of PDP Advocates to consult for the presidential ambition of former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the PDP secretariat in Minna, Niger State.

The PDP chieftain also said the zone only needs to adopt a consensus candidate to achieve that, and called on the north-central to come out as a united front ahead of the 2023 presidential elections.

Baraje said Senator Bukola Saraki is endowed with the character, capacity and competency of a president to elevate Nigeria out of it’s current chaos.

He said, “for the past years we have worked for other zones, we have assumed positions as national Chairman of the PDP severally and produced Presidents but this time around whether the national Chairman is from our zone, the North Central will still produce the next President.”

“Saraki has the capacity for the job. He will not be like those who are over 70 years old and travelling abroad for months not minding what happens to the people and the nation.
