An oil magnate from Gombe state, Alhaji Sadiq Bello Sardauna, has declared interest in the chairmanship of the Peoples Democratic Party and pledged to reunite the organisation and relaunch it to winning ways.
He said: “If given the mandate by our party men during the forthcoming national congress of the party, surely I will reunite all the factions.”
Addressing reporters in Kano on Tuesday, Saudauna said that his candidacy offers a window of opportunity for self-rediscovery by the party.
“Participatory democracy usually provides a platform for both the youth and the old to exhibit their leadership potentials, and we felt this is the time to step out and make the change,” he said.
