Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki who met with PDP delegates at the party’s secretariat in Lagos, told those present that he has “the medicine of the man who regards himself as godfather terrorising Lagos State.”
Bukola Saraki who promised to ensure that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, produces the next governor of Lagos State, said;
“What you have been fighting for many years, you will have it during the coming election because you now have somebody that has intention and charisma to deal with those disturbing you.
“I have a medicine of the man who regards himself as godfather terrorising Lagos State. We have their formula, come next year, PDP will take over Lagos.”
The Senate President also warned Nigerians to be mindful of presidential aspirants promising to restructure Nigeria, if elected president.
“Many aspirants will tell you that they will restructure Nigeria, but don’t let them deceive you because restructuring is not something only a president can do because certain laws also need to change.
“So you need a president that has political sagacity to carry people along. But there are very few aspirants today that possess such charisma. Once I assume office, I will devolve more powers to the state.’’
Bukola Saraki had before now, replied the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who had, in an analytical piece about the political situation in Nigeria, titled “They go Away because We go the Right Way,” said both Saraki and the Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal left the APC because the party could not offer them what they wanted.
Tinubu, in the political-philosophical analysis accused the duo of leaving the APC because, they both covet the presidency and, according to him, the APC cannot give them their desires. He said Saraki wants automatic ticket and resource sharing, and seeks undemocratic means of achieving his desires.
However, in a sharp response, Saraki said the APC’s national leader’s analysis is, according to him, as wrong as it is mischievous. Saraki said he is surprised that Tinubu is “still peddling the falsehood about the fact that my defection is about automatic ticket and sharing of resources.”
