#PDP Convention: Saraki, Atiku Top Contenders for Presidential Ticket
Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, and the former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar are the two top contenders for the presidential ticket of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, at its national convention holding in Port Hacourt, Rivers State.
A reliable source within the party’s top heirachary, who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that the two candidates seem to curry most of the delegates’s support and popularity with delegates from across the country’s six (6) geo- political zones.
According to our source, South-East Delegates split between Saraki and Atiku, North-East Delegates split between Saraki and Atiku. It also added that all North Central delegate caucuses are supporting Saraki.
At press time, the convention is still unfolding.
