Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has asked delegate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Oyo State to the party’s presidential primary in October not to vote for any other Presidential aspirants but him, who he said is their own son.
“I know that I have captured a delegate with me. I am sure that many aspirants have come but now that your own has come home, there is nothing wrong in telling them your son has come so that Oyo can have someone that will protect its priority,”
Senator Saraki, who addressed PDP delegates in Oyo State today, Wednesday ahead of the October presidential primary of the party, declared: “on my father side, my grandmother came from Iseyin here in Oyo State; the same town where the PDP chairman in Oyo State comes from.
“I am happy to be back at home. This is my home, this is my state. By the boundaries that we share between Oyo and Kwara States, compared to other aspirants, it is just a stone throw to travel from Oyo to Kwara State, and they will know that their next president is just next door.”
Saraki gave assurance that Oyo State’s priorities would be protected if he becomes the president.
