2023: It’s The Turn Of North-Central To Produce Next President – Saraki

 Former President of the senate and presidential aspirant, Bukola Saraki has said that it is the turn of the North-Central geopolitical zone to produce the next president of Nigeria.

Saraki made this known on Tuesday in Jos while addressing delegates from Plateau ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party primary elections slated to hold in May.

Saraki, a former Kwara governor, who is among the many aspirants jostling for the PDP ticket, stressed that the North-Central had consistently supported other regions to lead the country and deserved similar support from other zones, this time.

“You remember that before the national convention of our party, we held a meeting in Abuja with delegates of North-Central extraction.

“We said to ourselves that for many times and many years, we, in the North Central, have worked hard, we struggled, used our efforts, used our money, used our energies to support other people to lead.

“Everybody, who had become President under this great party, got the seat because of our massive sacrifices.

“We have now resolved that it is time for others to vote for us in 2023,” he said.

He added that the current security situation of the nation is due to unaccountability. He stressed that people act the way the want because there was no one to hold them accountable for their actions.

“The problem of insecurity in Nigeria is because there has been no accountability. People have done things and nobody was held accountable for their failures.

“When I was Senate President, we sat down with security agencies and drew a roadmap on how to address the issue of insecurity, but the report was abandoned.

“If I am the President, I will hold people accountable and they will do what is right to end insecurity and there will be no injustice,” he said.

Saraki further stated that the country was so divided and needed someone that had the capacity and a good grasp of the situation to restore its lost glory and unite the people.

Reacting, the PDP Chairman in Plateau, Chris Hassan, told the delegates that Saraki stood with the state during its trying times.

Hassan said that Saraki was a stabilising factor that had traversed the length and breadth of the country to reconcile members of the PDP.
