Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki who was in Enugu state yesterday to consult with PDP members in the state ahead of the party presidential primaries in October, disclosed he is contesting in the 2019 election to become Nigeria’s President so he can fight for the rights of Nigerians.
Bukola Saraki who asked the people of Enugu south-east to stand by him as he plans to change the leadership of the executive, added that without unity and working together we cannot build a progressive nation
”It takes a politician who knows the problems of the masses to bring solution and unity to the people. I am here to tell you that we have a project. The country is not as it was three years ago. We are all concerned about the insecurity in the land, the unemployment and hunger in the country. Many youths today do not have any job and the future is not okay for them and we do not have time to continue to wait and things continue to deteriorate.”
‘For me and us in the national assembly, it is not for personal ambition, we have continued to fight for the right of the people, for justice and freedom in this democracy. We are fighting for people to be able to exercise and express their views and opinions without any form of intimidation or oppression. We have gone through a lot, I and your son, Ike Ekweremadu, since we have decided to fight for what is right”.
“A president that understands the issues facing Nigerians, a president that will unite the whole country, that will create jobs and identify with the youths in their aspirations. Without unity and working together we cannot build a progressive nation’ he added.
The Senate President has already joined the growing list of PDP members, who have picked up the Presidential form.
