2023: Saraki speaks on running for president

Bukola Saraki

A former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has downplayed the possibility of running for the presidency in 2023.

Saraki nnoted he would address the issue at the right time, because he is focused on building a strong party and country.

He said: “What is important for any PDP member who truly loves the party and cares for the country is to have a party first.

“One of the reasons I took the responsibility of the National Reconciliation Committee was because there was a concern that the party was losing a lot of steam. Without a strong party, you can’t meet your individual ambition.

“As about last year, some individuals have already talked about their ambition for 2023, and I said it can’t be about ambition now, but we need to build a strong party.

“So, the focus for me now is for us to build a strong party, and we have started the process in our congresses, reconciliation, and hopefully the convention.

“After we have put that in place, then we can start talking about individual interests. In due time I would love to respond when I’m ready.”
