PDP aspirants running for various elective positions on the platform of the party made last-minute moves to beat today’s deadline for the submission of their Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms. Former Minister of Special Duties, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, who submitted his nomination forms, used the opportunity to clear the air on insinuations making the rounds that the party might be forced to settle for the North-West in its search for a presidential candidate. Represented by Director of Media, Kabiru Turaki Campaign Organisation, Sola Atere, the presidential hopeful ruled out any chance of backing out of the race, saying delegates would determine who get the party’s ticket. Other Presidential aspirants who submitted their nomination forms yesterday, were Senators Rabiu Kwankwaso and Datti Baba-Ahmed.
