Interview with PDP Presidential candidates

I’ve the capacity to lead Nigeria — Kwankwaso



Former governor of Kano State, Rabi’u Kwankwaso, is the lawmaker representing Kano Central Senatorial District. He explains to LEKE BAIYEWU efforts he is making to get the ticket of the PDP in the presidential primary

What do you think qualifies you to be Nigeria’s President?

The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria provides me with the right to vie for any office in the land provided I have the right qualifications, which I do – being of certain age, with no criminal record. These qualify me to vie for the Office of the President under the Peoples Democratic Party. Moreover, I have served Nigeria in various capacities and I have proven myself to be a worthy patriot. I was in the civil service where I served diligently. I served the nation as a politician in elective and appointed positions. I was a two-term Governor of Kano State and my stewardship of Kano is a testimony of what I can do in the executive position.

I believe politicians should be judged by their scorecards, based on the promises they made during electioneering and what they are able to execute when they have the mandate. With all sense of humility, I will say that I have fulfilled all electoral promises made in the wake of the 2011 general elections. In fact, I have done things that weren’t part of my electoral promises. For example, I did not promise the oversea’s scholarship scheme, yet our administration sponsored more than 2,600 Kano indigent men and women to acquire higher degrees in various nations across the globe in different fields of endeavour.

I did all that by making smart, thoughtful decisions to achieve the best outcome. I am confident that if I get the mandate to lead Nigeria, I will harness its resources and translate them into improved quality of life for all Nigerian citizens. All that is needed is to broaden the scope.

How do you hope to defeat others in the primary?

Primaries are not about defeating anyone; they are about selecting the best out of your team. The most important thing is to rally behind that person that has the potential to win the general elections. I believe I have the capacity to win the presidential election if the PDP gives me the mandate. I have been pretty busy lately, going round the nation, meeting delegates and party stakeholders, intimating them with my plans for this great country. What is more? I have the support of the masses, who believe in the Kwankwasiyya ideology and are working tirelessly to promote it across Nigeria. This is my strength and I believe it is the prerequisite needed to win the general elections. Still, no matter the way the (PDP presidential) primary goes, if it comes to that, I still hope the PDP wins come 2019.

Do you have faith in the PDP’s ability to conduct a free and fair primary?

The PDP is a democratic party populated by democrats. PDP’s men and women have seen it all. Therefore, I don’t think it will degenerate into undemocratic tendencies. So, I believe its primaries would be free and fair.

What should Nigeria expect in the election if you win the primary?


Nigerians should expect good governance that will come with responsibility. In essence, we should all buckle up to build this great nation together. Each and every one of us will be part of that nation building, even if it is by voicing an opinion. In governance, public opinion matters. Nigerians should expect improved security of lives and property, a boost in youth employment, infrastructural development, an overall better Nigeria.

We will initiate projects that have multiplier effects, which in turn will create jobs. For example, we will embark on building infrastructure. A great percentage of those contracts will be awarded to indigenous companies that will buy their raw materials locally. This will generate wealth.  This is just one example. Therefore, under my leadership, we should all expect a better Nigeria, a Nigeria that works for everyone regardless of religion or ethnicity.

I’m intellectually prepared to govern Nigeria —Dankwambo



Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, tells SUNDAY ABORISADE why Nigerians should elect him President next year

What do you think qualifies you to be Nigeria’s President?

Honestly, a lot of colleagues vying for the exalted seat of the President possess great potential but I must objectively prove why I am the most qualified person to be President, based on facts without emotional influence.

Security and the economy are major sectors impeding the smooth progress of this country. I have been governor of a state in the core northern part of Nigeria and my state remains the most peaceful and terror-free. There are no cases of persistent and consistent religious clashes or the dreadful Boko-Haram operating in my state. This is a testimony to my innate ability to provide the most needed security in Nigeria. Nigeria can be secured again for investors and all other business activities if I am elected president.

In the economic sector, I am no doubt the foremost person in every sphere. As a former Accountant General of the Federation, I initiated the most rewarding Treasury Single Account which Nigeria has adopted to be indispensable in the running of a Nigeria that works. I consider myself the most intellectually prepared President Nigeria needs at this hour of her political season and dispensation. Presidential seat for me is a call to service and not a way to accrue resources for personal aggrandisement. It is a duty that I owe and really ready to deliver.

How do you hope to defeat other aspirants in the primary?

I believe my victory is sure especially from delegates. This is not about defeating other aspirants though. I believe every insightful delegate will give his or her vote to Dankwambo. I’m the most prepared for the job.

Do you have faith in the PDP’s ability to conduct a free and fair primary?

Yes, I want to affirm my trust in the credibility of the democratic setting of our party.

What should Nigeria expect in the election if you win the primary?

The candidacy of Dankwambo, as the PDP presidential candidate, will surely announce the incontrovertible end of APC reign. It will change the political atmosphere of the country and ascertain the victory of the PDP.

My candidacy will usher in a new dawn of undaunted economic breakthrough for Nigerians and Nigeria. My government will, as a matter of top priority, reform and restructure the current dysfunctional and ineffective Nigerian security architecture to meet the security needs of the country.  We will disarm, immediately, all those bearing arms unlawfully in the country. We will effectively police and secure our borders; and adequately strengthen the institutions primarily charged with the responsibility of providing security for Nigerians. Furthermore, my administration  will establish a community policing programme involving neighbourhoods charged with the responsibility to monitor and gather intelligence for the different security agencies in their individual domains.

My administration’s programme will reduce poverty – Saraki

My administration’s programme will reduce poverty – Saraki



 Senate President, Bukola Saraki, tells SUNDAY ABORISADE why Nigerians should vote for him as the next President

What do you think qualifies you to be Nigeria’s President?

I have fulfilled all the nation’s constitutional requirements. I also believe that I have had a very good and useful experience both in the private and public sectors. Apart from my banking experience, as far back as 2001 when I served as Special Assistant to President Olusegun Obasanjo on budget matters, I have constantly contributed to making government serve the people better. As the governor of Kwara State, my administration, turned around the state for the better with innovative programmes, policies and projects in the areas of public health, commercial agriculture, infrastructure facilities, improvement in the education sector and commerce. As chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, we turned the body into a vibrant forum which intervened in solving key national problems. As Senate President, I championed the passage of much-needed governance and economic reforms through bills and motions. Apart from this, I have had outstanding experience in the private sector. I operated as a state chief executive for eight years. I have managed executives and men of substance in the last 12 years. I am a liberal nationalist, thereby making bridge-building easier for me. This is what Nigeria needs now. As the presidential candidate of the PDP, we will make public and lay out the details of  our programmes and policies  for achieving the project #GrowNigeria.

How do you hope to defeat other Presidential Aspirants in the primary?

I have moved across all the states of the country in the last one month, addressing PDP delegates, both elected and statutory. We have just a few states that I had yet to visit and we will complete the campaigns in the next few days. I have been taking our message of #Let’sGrowNigeria to our members across the country and I this had endeared us to many delegates.

Do you have faith in PDP’s ability to conduct a free and fair primary?

Absolutely! Since 1999, PDP has had a history of organising elaborate, transparent, credible and well put together convention. Again, I have confidence in the ability of the Governor Okowa-led convention committee set up by the party leadership to organise a free, peaceful and credible convention that will produce a candidate behind whom the entire party and the country as a whole can rally to achieve victory for PDP in next year’s presidential election.

What should Nigeria expect in the general election if you win the primary?

I will engage in issue-based campaign and a vibrant mobilization of all voters. There will be active involvement of the youths and the women in the campaigns and development of programmes and policies around which the populace will be rallied. Our people will see a candidate who is ready to win the presidency and swing into action from the very day he takes the oath of office. My plan to #GrowNigeria has inclusion in all aspects of the country’s affairs as a central pillar. Our youth do not deserve to live and grow up in a nation that is now being referred to as the ‘Poverty Capital of the World.’ When elected President, I will lead from the front by employing every God-given resource that is available to our nation to grow us out of poverty; stimulate the growth of our SMEs; energise our economy; and create wealth and opportunities for all Nigerians.

I’m the only candidate that can defeat APC –Atiku

I’m the only candidate that can defeat APC –Atiku



Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar tells SUNDAY ABORISADE his strategies to win the 2019 presidential poll if he emerges the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party

What do you think qualifies you to be Nigeria’s President?

Atiku Abubakar has experience in both the public and private sector. As Vice President, my support for democracy is without match. My headship of the economic management team propelled the era of privatisation which stimulated the economy to grow at 7seven per cent annually.

In the private sector, I have a track record of job creation and I had created more jobs than any other aspirant. I have the ability to see opportunities and turn them to wealth creating opportunities.

I have the ability to pool the best minds together to move the country forward and has proven that both in the public sector and my private businesses.

I am a detribalised leader who sees Nigeria as his constituency.

Atiku has a great understanding of governance; he is a person with vision, passion, policies and political will to get things done.

How do you hope to defeat others in the primaries?

Atiku Abubakar is the one candidate with experience across the regions, states and local governments of Nigeria; he is not the candidate of one area or denomination. He has support across Nigeria – from youth, farmers and business people. The delegates of PDP, from across Nigeria will recognise Atiku as the one candidate who can defeat the APC and bring jobs and opportunities, unity, security and development to all of Nigerians.

Do you have faith in the PDP’s ability to conduct a free and fair primary?

Yes, I have faith; PDP is one. We should all remember that it was a PDP government that, in 2015, held the freest and fairest elections in Nigeria’s history. The PDP also understands that if it is to win in 2019, the elections must be free and fair. So, this primary will be free and fair.

What should Nigeria expect in the election if you win the primary?

In 2015, Nigerians voted for change and in the last three years, they have grown increasingly distressed about the change they received – job losses, businesses closed, farmers impoverished, our people being divided more than ever before and rising insecurity. Atiku Abubakar will run a campaign across all of Nigeria that begins addressing these issues. His campaign will be like his government talking and working with the states and people of Nigeria to restructure and create jobs, wealth for farmers, and business opportunities for youths and lifting Nigerians out of poverty. The campaign will be the start of getting Nigeria working again.

I stood with PDP in defeat –Mark

I stood with PDP in defeat –Mark



Former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, tells SUNDAY ABORISADE why he wants to be Nigeria’s President in 2019

What do you think qualifies you to be Nigeria’s President?

At the risk of not being immodest, I can say emphatically that I am adequately equipped and prepared for the task of being Nigerian President. My pedigree is an eloquent testimony. I am sure that if you put me on a scale, vis-a-vis other aspirants, your conclusion will be as good as mine. Honestly, I have the requisite training, experience and skills to be President of Nigeria.

Besides being a military governor, Minister and member of the defunct Armed Forces Ruling Council, Senator and President of the Senate for eight uninterrupted years, I have traversed all the nooks and crannies of Nigeria. Presently, the country is fragmented and will require a bridge builder to stop the malaise. I know what it takes for Nigerians to bond together once again. My background unarguably puts me at a vantage position to be the bridge between the military and the civilians, North and South, executive and legislature, executive and judiciary and between the old and the young generations.

Events in the recent past showed that the nation has never been so fragmented and disunited as it is now. Without blowing my trumpet, it will take a man with my experience to unite Nigerians. I have a clear picture of what needs to be done to get the nation back on track. First, I will put necessary machinery in motion for the restoration of peace and tranquillity of this country. I will stabilise Nigeria. I will restore the hope and confidence of the people in government and the Nigerian project. Above all, together we will ensure the prevalence of justice and equity. By so doing, we will be protecting Nigeria as a corporate entity.

How do you hope to defeat others in the PDP primary?

I know Nigerians are wiser now. I also know that our delegates are men and women of honour and integrity. I have repeatedly said my aspiration is for the common good of the nation. All of us in this contest are eminently qualified but I make bold to say that I stand out among my competitors in this race. I have over the years, garnered experience in administration, both in the executive and legislative arms of government. I have been consistent and steadfast.

Remember in 2015, after our defeat, virtually everybody, who was who in the PDP, defected to the ruling party. But I said that was not fair and that I would remain in the PDP to rebuild it. I submitted that I will be the last man standing for the PDP. I noted then that those who were defecting were fair-weather friends and that if by tomorrow PDP bounces back, they would return. Today, the party has bounced back and it is now a beautiful bride to be betrothed. It is only fair and logical that those who stood to be counted when it mattered most should be given the opportunity to lead, because Nigeria needs steady and stable hands now.

Do you have faith in PDP’s ability to conduct a free and fair primary?

Our party, the PDP, is a democratic organisation. I believe the party will uphold the tenets of democracy and allow the will of the people to prevail. The chairman and members of the convention planning committee are men and women of honour. I am confident that they will not do anything that will subvert or discredit the democratic process in electing our party’s presidential flag bearer. We are 13 presidential aspirants in this race. We all know that only one person will clinch the ticket. We have also resolved among ourselves to support anyone who emerges the winner through a free, fair, transparent and credible process.

What should Nigeria expect in the election if you win the primary?

Nigerians should expect a healthy contest between the PDP and others. Recent events should tell you that PDP is now a party of choice for the people. I have designed a comprehensive economic blueprint on how the nation can get out of the woods. My economic blueprint tagged DM 730 is a sure road map to our economic recovery. In it, we shall focus on manufacturing, promote small and medium scale enterprises, agriculture, health and social services, reduce poverty, create wealth and generate employment opportunities for our teeming population. Our team of young professionals would drive the process. Above all, we shall strengthen our educational institutions at all levels and make education truly functional. We will deliberately invest in the health sector; make health care delivery affordable to the people which, in turn, will reduce medical tourism. We will tackle the security challenges headlong and restore the hope and confidence of our people. Government’s primary responsibility to the welfare and security of citizens is not a fluke.
