Ahead of the PDP presidential primary elections, Former Senate president and presidential aspirant Bukola Saraki has met with the party Delegates in Calabar to solicit their support.
The Former Governor of Kwara state made this known in a tweet via his official twitter page.
He wrote, “Duly nicknamed ‘The People’s Paradise’, Cross River State’s economic potential in the areas of tourism and mineral resource extraction are enormous.
“This is why, in my message to @OfficialPDPNig delegates in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, I emphasized that I will be a President that takes the economic development of Cross River State and the security of its people and their businesses seriously.
“I also reaffirmed my pledge to ensure the empowerment of more women and young people across Cross River State in politics, government, and the private sector if elected to serve as Nigeria’s next President.”
Saraki had declared his intention to run for President in January 2022 via a Facebook post after his various followers demanded that he made his position known.
