2019: Saraki considers running against Buhari
Thu, 16 Aug 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, is considering running against President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019. Saraki, who had earlier hinted at running for the highest office in the land, told Bloomberg in an interview that he had been consulting widely.

In the last one week, the Senate president has visited ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and former Military President, Ibrahim Babangida. Saraki said he would need to win the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to actualise his objective of leading the country. The Senate president, who defected to PDP from All Progressives Congress, APC, two weeks ago, accused the APC of not managing its victory well, saying his new party could make a difference. He said: “I am consulting and actively considering it… I believe I can make the change. The PDP has learned its lesson from the loss in 2015, and I think unfortunately, the APC did not learn from their victory.

“While negotiating with the PDP, we listed a number of issues. We talked about how to sustain and improve the fight against corruption; the issue of providing more powers to the states; inclusion and having a more nationalistic approach on things we do; to continue to improve the environment that will ensure investments. “We listed a number of items during the discussions with the PDP, and there is a written agreement to that. We trust that we can hold them to that. “We would ensure that the party is strong on security. The APC too has not done well on the issue of security. We have the opportunity with the right kind of presidential candidate and president to provide the leadership for the party. The party has a good opportunity to lead the country in the right direction.”
