- Presidential aspirants for the 2019 general elections are trying to sell their manifestos to Nigerians
- PDP aspirant, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, says his major selling point is his honour
- He stated that he is ready for a free, fair and transparent primary election
Front-line Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, has stated that his major selling point ahead of the party's primary election is his integrity.
Turaki who was speaking while addressing his supporters recently after submitting his nomination form at the PDP headquarters, stated that he had always been a man of honour, integrity and credibility.
According to him, it is impossible to change that character trait which Nigerians from different parts of the country can attest to.
His words: “As a man of honour, there is no way I will announce to Nigerians that I want to be their president and be deceiving them. I was not brought up as an ambivalent character.
“Besides, there is no way that I would have attained the rank of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and also practiced for decades as a legal practitioner without blemish if I have not been found worthy of character.
“Look, one of my strongest points as a leading presidential aspirant is that I have the fear of God in addition to my incomparable attributes of integrity, credibility, education, knowledge, experience, dynamism and determination to succeed.”
Turaki pointed out that the consultations he has embarked on nationwide in his quest to lead the country, have provided the delegates and other members including the PDP governors the opportunity to assess his capacity in terms of education, intellect, courage, experience and dynamism besides integrity and credibility to hold the highest office in the land.
“Everywhere we went, they have been astonished at my eloquence, outstanding knowledge and profound solutions to Nigeria’s problems. In fact, there had been comments after my engagements with some our distinguished members asking: 'what else are we looking for after having this caliber of person?'
“I am humbled by such favourable comments but irrespective of such comments, I am, as a loyal party man ready for the free, fair and transparent primary promised by our party,” he said.
