A member of the Peoples Democratic Party?s Board of Trustees, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, has said President Goodluck Jonathan will not run for the Presidency in 2019.

He explained that the party would shop for a strong Hausa/Fulani candidate to run against Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in 2019.



Babatope, who is also a member of the party?s elders caucus, spoke with newsmen in Lagos on Wednesday.

He described the outgoing President as a leader, who had done his best in uplifting the nation?s democracy, adding that Nigeria would forever remember Jonathan as a committed leader, who kept the nation as one despite several challenges.

The 72-year-old said he was sure that the President would not seek to contest the 2019 presidential election.

The former transport minister added, ?Although the people of the South-South have the right to present a candidate for the election, I?m sure the President will not contest. He will lead us against the All Progressives Congress.

?The President has set himself apart as a great Nigerian leader, who is committed to seeing Nigeria blossom into a great democracy. He has laid a solid foundation for the nation?s democracy and he would forever be remembered.

?The President will not contest the 2019 presidential election. The PDP will look for a strong Hausa/Fulani presidential candidate to contest against Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.?
