Katsina state governor, Aminu Masari, has explained that it would be a miracle for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to get a candidate that can defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 presidential election.
Governor Masari in an interview with Daily Trust said he is aware that the opposition is angling for formidable presidential candidates from the north-west to face President Buhari in 2019.
According to him, ''The opposition is angling for formidable presidential candidates from the north west to face Buhari in 2019, can they find one?
''Well, unless someone is going to come out from the ground. of all the people we're seeing lining up in the PDP, they're characters known to President and all of us. We know their weights, capabilities and resources, fullness of all of them; unless either from the moon or from the ground.
''If what I read is true, they're shopping for somebody who is not a politician but one who held public office that can match the integrity of president. We're waiting for that miracle to happen.
''But if these characters that are jumping from pillars to posts, fortune hunters or power hunters, if you're talking about those kind of people, I'm not the spokesman of the president, but I assure you the president is ready and willing to confront them any time, any day and anywhere.''
