A former minister of Special Duties under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Tanimu Turaki, has declared his intention to contest the 2019 presidential polls.

The former minister from Kebbi State is seeking to run on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

State chapter chairman of the PDP, Haruna Saidu, said it was a welcome development “as he is the first from the state to declare his intention.”

Turaki and former ministers under the PDP administration had resolvedĀ to produce a presidential candidate from their ranks.
