Breaking: Ex—Speaker, House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole Joins Presidential Race

Share This


Former House of Representatives Speaker Hon. Dimeji Bankole has joined the presidential race.

He is set to buy nomination form of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) next week.

A close ally of the former Speaker, Malam Abdullahi Bayero, confirmed this to our correspondence in Kaduna on Wednesday during a stakeholders meeting.

According to him: “Right Honourable Dimeji Bankole is in the race and he is contesting on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

“He has met with various stakeholders and their support is overwhelming, especially across the North. So, he is set to buy the APC nomination form next week”

Many see him as someone who ticked all the boxes as far as having a young, smart, competent and patriotic president is concerned.

“Just like former military president Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida posited, Nigeria needs a young leader. I think there should be no debate over that even though the constitution did not stop old men from running for office.

“There are many northerners who believe Bankole is the right man to be supported, recalling how he handled the situation when then President Umaru Yar’adua took ill while in office. He is a candidate the North, indeed Nigeria as whole can trust,” Bayero said.
