As the lead up to the 2019 general elections gathers steam, Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, has called on Nigerians to unite and elect a President who is abreast of the new world social order and is capable of initiating positive change in the nation.
Dr Saraki made the call on Wednesday in Calabar, the Cross-River State capital, during a visit to Governor Ben Ayade.
The Senate president added that he was optimistic that Nigerians will vote in new dynamic leaders that will positively change the country’s political narrative.
“There is a new world order that is out there.
“A new world order that requires a new type of leadership. A new order that requires a president that is mobile, digital, that has vision, that can plan for his people and has a destination he is taking his people to.
“We have seen this evolve across the world and everybody is waiting for when it will come to Nigeria. Distinguished excellency, it has come at this time.
“We cannot afford to make the mistake. It is not just about voting out the APC.
“It’s about voting out the APC, restoring and repairing Nigeria,” he said.
Saraki’s comment comes as President Muhammadu Buhari called on Nigerians not to allow the Peoples Democratic Party return to power in 2019, having already “brought the nation to its knees.”
