2023 Elections: Saraki declares presidential ambition

Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidency.

The former Kwara State Governor said he has a strong record of delivering and experience in making tough decisions.

Born December 19th, 1962, Bukola Saraki is the son of Second Republic Senator, late Olusola Saraki. He was first elected into the Senate in 2011 and emerged Senate President in 2015.

Saraki, who said he was responding to calls to rescue Nigeria, wrote on his Facebook post: “Earlier, I replied to a follower of mine on Twitter, who like thousands of you have been clamouring for a united front to #RescueNigeria.

“As we prepare for the journey ahead, I hope we can all join hands to get the ticket of our great party, PDP, and build a nation that works for all of us.

“Join me to make our communities safer and provide real opportunities for you and your families. I have a strong record of delivering and experience in making tough decisions.

“Let’s build a new Nigeria that works for EVERYONE!”

With this development, Saraki has joined the league of politicians including a former governor of Lagos State,  Asiwaju Bola Tinubu;  Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi; Senate Chief Whip, Orji Kalu and former Imo Governor Rochas Okorocha, who had formerly indicated interest to contest the 2023 Presidency.

There are speculations that Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President, may also declare his Presidential aspiration soon.
