Following reports that Senate President Bukola Saraki is preparing to step down for Atiku, the lawmaker has reacted.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has made it clear he will not step down for former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar, as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) prepares to hold its presidential primary this weekend, according to Daily Post.

This is coming after it was speculated that Saraki is under pressure to withdraw from the race and support Atiku’s ambition.

However, in a phone chat with DAILY POST, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the media aide to the Senate President, rubbishes such stories.

“Please, please, please.. what kind of story is that?

“How can a leading candidate step down for somebody else? I have never heard of that before.

“You can go to Port Harcourt and see for yourself, that Saraki is a top contender for the ticket, ” Olaniyonu said.

PDP’s presidential primary is scheduled to hold on Saturday, September 6 to Sunday, September 7 in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.
