Word out is that the PDP youths have endorsed former Senate President, David Mark, to be the party’s flag bearer. Hence, Fayose is on his own.
The youth wing of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday explained that Nigerians should queue behind former Senate President, David Mark, as their president in 2019.
The national coordinator of the group, Alhaji Abdullahi Ali Kano, told newsmen that they would organize a rally aimed at mobilizing support for Mark’s presidency this weekend.
Ali Kano, who served as a member of the 2015 PDP Presidential Campaign Council and delegate to the 2014 National Conference, said Mark has all the qualities needed in a leader.
“Mark has never, since the inception of the PDP, left the party. For 19 years, he has remained faithful and loyal to the party. He has shown that he is not a fair-weather politician.
“David Mark is a disciplined military officer, an astute politician who is tested and trusted. He presided over the National Assembly for eight years without a blemish.
“Nigerians will always remember him for saving our country from the constitutional crisis during Umaru Musa Yar Adua’s administration when he came up with the Doctrine of Necessity,” Ali Kano added.
He noted that the rally, which would be replicated in all 36 states of the country, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), would be in the overall interest of the country, “especially the PDP members.”
Between Ayo Fayose and David Mark who do think will make a better candidate for PDP.
