Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant and former Senate President David Mark Monday said he is ready to support Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal if he clinches the presidential ticket of the party.
Mark, who made the assertion while addressing party supporters at the PDP Secretariat in Sokoto, said the tussle for the presidential ticket of the PDP was not a do or die affair, as any candidate who emerged the winner would be supported by all in order to ensure the party’s victory in the 2019 elections.
Mark said all the presidential aspirants in the PDP were preoccupied with defeating the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming elections and as such whoever emerges the candidate would be supported by others.
“The race for the presidential ticket of the PDP is not a do or die affair. If Tambuwal clinches the ticket, I will support him. If I win, Tambuwal will support me fully. So, it is not any contest between us.
“What we actually want is to remove this APC-led federal government that is not performing. And that is what we are asking Nigerians to do for us.
“In fact, with what is happening currently in Nigeria, nobody needs to tell a blind man that things are very difficult,” Mark said.
