Former President Goodluck Jonathan has stated that any candidate elected out of the 13 at the Peoples Democratic Party convention will be the next president of Nigeria.
Jonathan spoke at the convention of the PDP in Port Harcourt in the early hours of Sunday.
He said that all the aspirants are qualified to lead the country, having interacted with them since 1999.
According to him, the greatest problem with Nigeria is that of unity and urged Nigerians to elect a leader that would unite the county.
He said all the aspirants are eminently qualified to lead the country and urged the delegates to elect a person who will bring Nigeria together.
“PDP is clearly the party to take over power. ‘If you select one among the aspirants, l’m sure the person will make Nigeria proud,” he said.
Jonathan said all the aspirants during their meeting had pledged a commitment to support whoever emerges as the PDP presidential flag bearer.
