Former President Goodluck Jonathan is confident that any candidate elected from the 13 Peoples Democratic Party presidential aspirants will be the next President of Nigeria.
The PDP candidate will contest against President Muhammadu Buhari who is seeking a second term in office.
Jonathan who spoke at the convention in Port Harcourt early on Sunday 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.
All the aspirants are eminently qualified to lead the country and urged the delegates to select a person who will bring Nigeria together.
The leading contestants are former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Sokoto governor Aminu Tambuwal, Senate President Bukola Saraki, former Kano governor Rabiu Kwankwaso and Gombe governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo.
“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 that all the aspirants during their meeting had pledged a commitment to support whoever emerges as the PDP presidential flag bearer.
