Saraki bemoans Nigeria’s dire state, says it needs active president
Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has lamented the parlous state of the nation, saying he will addressed Nigeria’s challenges if he becomes president.
The former Kwara state governor, spoke on Sunday when he met with the national delegates of the Peoples Democratic party from Benue State.
He beseeched them to give him their votes so as to restore the glory of the country.
Saraki decried the insecurity problems in the country and said only a courageous president like him can take the country out of the woods.
“Nigeria today is not the Nigeria I know. It’s possible to rescue Nigeria. My records are there in every office that I had occupied.
“You need a president that will take action, I have stood for the integrity of the National Assembly and Nigeria. I will provide the kind of leadership that will end banditry.
“We must be able to end this issues of banditry. We know why it has not ended, we need the right president with the right technology. We need a president that will take us out of this present mess,” Saraki said.
Speaking on his agenda for Benue State, Saraki promised to invest in and support agricultural development in the state.
The PDP presidential aspirant said that he would replicate the agricultural transformation he did when he was a governor in Kwara state in Benue.
“I will invest and support agriculture in Benue State,” he said.
In his response, Governor Samuel Ortom advised that all the presidential aspirants need to come together and to have a consensus candidate among themselves for others to support.
He expressed hope that 2023 will provide the country with the right leadership to take Nigerians out of its present crisis.
