Senate President and 2019 presidential aspirant, Dr Bukola Saraki, has stated that he’s sure of picking the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Describing President Muhammadu Buhari administration as sectional, Saraki said his aspiration to rule the country is not just an ambition but a dream he hopes to realise.
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.
He stressed 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.
“By the grace of God, I will emerge PDP presidential candidate. My desire is not just an 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.”
“I will continue to fight for the masses. We have to change the leadership. We need a leadership that would ensure justice and fair distribution of national appointments. As a president, I will ensure everybody has a seat on his table. I will restore global reputation. Countries are built by handwork and vision.”
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.
