Senate President, Bukola Saraki has formally declared his intention of taking a shot at the Presidency.
He made the declaration on Thursday while delivering a keynote address at a dialogue for youths and young aspirants in Abuja.
He said, “I hereby announce my intention to run for the office of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the coming General Elections in 2019 on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). I do so with the firm conviction that I have what it takes to secure inclusive growth for Nigeria and Nigerians”.
He has been mooted across several quarters to make a Presidential declaration soon, with the closest links being aroused some weeks ago after speaking to a cross section of journalists.
Saraki’s announcement is following former Kano State Governor, Musa Kwankwaso’s in a colourful event.
