Senate president Bukola Saraki has debunked news that he has declared to run for the post of president in the forth coming 2019 general election.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Saraki revealed that he is considering joining the race
“I am consulting and actively considering it, I believe I can make the change,” he said.
But clarifying his position on the matter, the Senate President said the aspiration was still at the considering stage.
“‘Considering’ is not a declaration. At the appropriate time, the President of Senate will be specific about his aspiration for 2019,” his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said on Thursday.
“Moreover, the Bloomberg interview was 90% on the economy, and not politics.
“The President of the Senate has been clear that at the right time, Nigerian’s will know what his plans are,” he said.
Olaniyonu restated his principal’s comment last month where he said: “Time will come for everything; a time will come for me to tell people where I am, what I’m doing.”
