Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State says the best presidential aspirant on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) is no match for the least preferred candidate among those scrambling for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket.
Speaking when he received former Senate President, Bukola Saraki in Ibadan on Tuesday, Makinde said PDP has what it takes to wrest power from APC.
Saraki was in Ibadan to woo PDP delegates ahead of the forthcoming presidential primary of the party.

Makinde, while speaking, said that he has no doubt that PDP would get its act right and present a presidential candidate that will win the presidency.
He added that whoever emerges as the candidate of PDP would salvage the country from the fangs of economic woes and insecurity.
Makinde while speaking further maintained that the PDP convention is an avenue for the party to take a serious decision for itself and the country.
Makinde, who described the former governor of Kwara State as a good presidential material, said that the least of the PDP presidential aspirants is better than the best APC has to offer.
“Some believe that in PDP, the least of our aspirants is better than the best APC wants to offer.
