2019: PDP will present better candidate than President Buhari – Babatope


A member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Ebenezer Babatope on Wednesday said the party would present a better candidate that would be able to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 elections.

Babatope disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

The former Minister of Transportation said that PDP would take its time produce such a candidate, who would give Nigerians a better deal than what the current administration had so far given.

“The PDP would present a better candidate than the president in the next elections. We can give Nigerians that assurance.

“We will take our time and ensure that our presidential aspirants are not navigating the political terrain unnecessarily.

“They must be sure of themselves such that any one that eventually emerges the party’s candidate will sure be better than President Buhari,’’ Babatope said.
