According to a report by Post-Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and members of a Think Tank Committee, set up by former President, Goodluck Jonathan, is making overtures to Billionaire Businessman, Aliko Dangote, to come and contest the Presidential election on its platform.

An impeccable source in Abuja, said the party in a determined effort to win the 2019 election, has already sent an emissary to Dangote, who is reputed as the wealthiest Businessman in Africa.

It was learnt that the decision to reach out to Dangote, with a view to wooing him to come and contest the Presidential election on the platform of the PDP, was part of the decisions reached by members of a Think Tank Committee, put together by the immediate past President of the country, Jonathan Goodluck.

The source said: “I can confidently tell you that the PDP has made overtures to Alhaji Aliko Dangote, to come and fly the Presidential flag of our party, for the 2019 Presidential election.

“So many things were taken into consideration before the party arrived at this decision.

“Alhaji Dangote has the clout, the pedigree, the name, the followership, and above all, the financial war chest to match any Presidential candidate that the governing All Progressives Congress (APC), or any other party, may bring forward in 2019”.

Meanwhile, the President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, has ruled out the possibility of him running for Nigeria’s Presidency in the 2019 general elections, or in the near future.

Dangote in a recent interview with Bloomberg Markets Magazine, declared that he is not cut out for politics, stating that he is more comfortable with business.
