‘Why PDP leaders prefer Dankwambo as presidential candidate’

Published

on

The Commissioner for Information in Gombe State, Umar Suleiman, has said a powerful group within the Peoples Democratic Party is mounting pressure on Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo to contest as the party’s presidential candidate because of his vast experience in financial management.

Suleiman, in a statement on Saturday, said what Nigeria needs at the moment is a financial expert who could turn around the nation’s fortunes by deploying sound skills to manage men and resources.

He said, “What Nigeria needs is someone that has a good financial and management background. If we decide to elect someone without a solid financial background, it will be very difficult for the person to turn around the economy of this nation.

“Many things are needed to ensure that the economy is revived. Unfortunately, the present government is saying that we are out of recession but a lot of people are still suffering.

“Something drastic needs to be done in the area of economic revival of this country. There should be fresh composition of the economic team because the economy is still sick.”
