Borno and Yobe States chapters of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have pledged their support for the presidential aspiration of President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.

Delegates and other stakeholders of the party in the two states made the pledge, when a delegation sent by Saraki visited them separately on Friday in Maiduguri and Damaturu.

Receiving the delegation in Maiduguri, Borno State PDP Chairman, Alhaji Usman Ma’aji, who spoke on behalf of other stakeholders, said their support for Saraki was reciprocal to appreciate the confidence reposed in them by the Senate President, when he appointed one of them as Director-General of his campaign organisation.

Ma’aji said the only way to appreciate such gesture was to stand by Saraki, and ensure his victory, not only at the primary election level, but even at the general election.
