NIGERIA NEWS gathered from reports that the North West leaders believe that Bafarawa would be the only match to Buhari in the forthcoming Presidential elections.

According to a source, “It is true a meeting was held between some Northern leaders and youths in Birnin Kebbi where the issue of how PDP can present a credible and popular candidate and supports across board was discussed extensively.”
