Saraki reveals why he wants to be president of Nigeria


Senate President Bukola Saraki has revealed why he is aspiring to be president of Nigeria. According to him, he is driven by an obsession for justice, fairness and respect for the rule of law.

Speaking on Monday in Makurdi when he met with Benue State Working Committee of the PDP, Saraki said,

“I want to be President so that I can ensure justice and fairness for everyone; I want a country where the rule of law will be respected by all.” 

Saraki’s visit was to solicit support for his presidential aspiration ahead of the 2019 general elections. “We need leaders who are capable of representing all interest groups, and not a section of the country. 

“My presidential ambition is a collective decision borne out of a desire to salvage the disunity that we are witnessing,” he said. Saraki claimed that it was the turn of the North-Central geopolitical zone to produce the nation’s President, declaring that he was ready to provide quality leadership. 

“As a zone, we have paid our dues. It is the turn of our zone to lead Nigeria to stability. “We have gone through bad times. The nation has become crises-ridden; the killings are uncalled for and the Benue valley is the worst hit. 

“There should be justice to every citizen, regardless of geographical location. “Democracy entails freedom or rights of the people. Our rights should not be imprisoned,” he said.

The senate president vowed to restore peace in the country if elected as President, calling on Benue delegates to vote for him during PDP’s convention slated for October.
