– Dangote is expected to contest for the 2019 presidential election under the platform of the PDP There are indications that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) might be settling for Africa’s most richest man Aliko Dangote for its 2019 presidential campaigns.Daily Times reports that the PDP is already making plans to woo the billionaire to contest for 2019 presidency under its platform.
The source said the party has already sent emissary to Dangote after members of the PDP’s think tank committee constituted by the former president Goodluck Jonathan made the recommendation.“I can confidently tell you that the PDP has made overtures to Alhaji Aliko Dangote to come and fly the presidential flag of our party for the 2019 presidential election.”“So many things were taken into consideration before the party arrived at this decision. Alhaji Dangote has the clout, the pedigree, the name, the follower-ship and above all the financial war chest to match any presidential candidate that the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) or any other party may be bringing forward in 2019,”the source said.
