PDP delegates are undoubtedly and arguably the most discerning and democratic delegates in the contemporary Nigerian political parties. They are known for their intelligent decision-making, high degree of responsibility, integrity, patriotism and loyalty to the party. The delegates are conscious of the fact that aspirants may want to crave for their support through financial inducements or otherwise. However, that has never motivated them to deviate from insisting on more elevating values when they vote. They always vote for aspirants who have unquestionable track record, character, competence and above all, loyalty to the party while also having the capacity to move the country forward. This is why KTT stands the chance of having the people’s mandate. His flawless track record and outstanding party loyalty are flawless.
Below are KEY REASONS why KTT remains the best candidate to be voted for by the delegates in the presidential primary election:
DISTINGUISHED BACKGROUND AND SOUND HUMAN RELATIONSHIP
KT Turaki, a Lawyer from Kebbi State, was a former Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs. He also served as a Supervising Minister of Labour and Employment.
He is currently the Chairman of the Forum of Former Ministers on the platform of the PDP. He is also the chairman of the North West caucus of PDP comprising elder statesmen. During the 2015 presidential election, he was the Deputy Director General of the party’s presidential campaign committee. Turaki is a young and vibrant politician who has the backing of many people in his aspiration for the nation’s presidency. He is seen by many as a core grassroots politician, who has built a lot of political bridges across the country. He is a well-educated and articulate politician, a bundle of intellect with a wealth of experience and vast knowledge of technical know-how.
A DEMOCRAT, SYMBOL OF HOPE AND OPTIMISM
At a recent media parley, Barrister Turaki, who recently embarked on consultative meetings to leaders and other members of the PDP across the country, stressed that his priority when he clinches the presidential ticket will be to protect the oneness of the country and the survival of the nation’s democracy. According to him, “my chances are very bright to pick the PDP presidential ticket. I am a bridge builder, well educated and I am not fighting anybody. I also do not have any extra baggage. In all the positions that I had served, I have excelled.” The former Minister of Special Duties made it clear that the indivisibility of Nigeria and survival of Nigeria’s democracy would be of utmost priority and concern to him if elected President. KT Turaki is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria with the requisite capacity to protect the country’s constitution and promote the rule of law.
INTEGRITY AND RELIABILITY
Another important quality of KT Turaki is his time-tested integrity. The aspirant possesses consistency of action as well as unquestionable reliability and dependability.

KT Turaki symbolizes these attributes.
TESTED AND TRUSTED

KT Turaki has proven to be a ready and astute servant of his people. He’s an activist with strong record of activism for the underprivileged. He is tested and trusted.
RESPONSIBILITY AND LOYALTY

Luckily, KT Turaki has enough of these attributes which are what Nigeria and its people need.
