I will emerge PDP presidential candidate  — Saraki  

Senate President and Presidential Aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) , Bukola Saraki, has said that his aspiration to rule the country is not just an ambition but a dream he hopes to realise.

He described President Muhammadu Buhari administration as sectional,  saying that voting him out in 2019 will bring national unity and cohesion.


Speaking in Owerri, the Imo state capital while meeting with the stakeholders of the party ahead of the October 6, presidential primaries, Saraki, said that Nigeria has never been so divided in ethnicity, politics and religion.

Saraki said that Nigeria need a president who has a national spread to unite all parts of the country, respect national character, grow local businesses and support entrepreneurial skills.


The senate president, who described  himself as the right person to lead Nigeria in the next political era, said that the All Progressives Congress led government has failed on its promises to Nigerians.

According to him, “By the grace of God, I will emerge PDP presidential candidate. My desire is not an just ambition. Nigeria has never been this  divided. People are afraid to be called Nigerians. Ethnicity and religion have taken over. There is no inclusion anymore,no fairness, no federal character.”

He promised to partner with the people of the south-east to develop their business and entrepreneurial potentials.

Chairman of PDP in Imo state, Charles Ezekwem , who received the presidential hopeful, said that Igbo were interested in a presidential candidate that would restructure the country and create an additional state in the south East.
