Ahead of the 2019 presidential race, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is trying to woo former vice-president Atiku Abubakar and Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso .
SATURDAY SUN reports that initial meetings on how to get Atiku back into the PDP fold have been held in Abuja where it was decided that ”to get the former VP back into our fold (PDP), the party’s 2019 presidential ticket will be placed before him”. Should Atiku decline the offer, Kano State governor,Kwankwaso has been penciled down as a fallback option.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh in a telephone chat with Saturday Sun refused to confirm or deny the plot.
Whoever the PDP picks in 2019 will have to run against Muhammadu Buhari.
