2019: ‘Saraki will make Nigeria envy of other nations’


A Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Abdullah Umar Madidi, has asked the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, to make up his mind and contest the 2019 presidential election, saying he possessed the needed capacity and acumen to reunite Nigerians as well as make the country the envy of other nations.
This is just as the past lawmaker added that the Senate President’s track record – both in private and public service – “remain not onlyexemplary, but indeed legendary and thus unique.” The former federal lawmaker said Saraki had proven to be a leader with huge grasp and knowledge of inherent issues in the Nigerian project and thus was in the right stead to lead the country out of its currentwoods.
He said: “From his sojourn in the private sector, to his experience asa commissioner and then governor of Kwara state, till his becoming atwo term senator and subsequently the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, is in a world of his own and hence the most qualified at the moment tofly the opposition’s flag in the Presidential election next year.
“He is also an easily sellable candidate as a Northerner with a humongous and unprecedented support-base in the different parts of the country, there is no better candidate that can pull the magic wandneeded to oust President Muhammadu Buhari’s led APC government, out of office.” He said he was particularly in support of Saraki who can be likened to a political genius whose emergence from the North central geo-political region would be the binding new spirit and cohesion thatwas vitally needed by the nation at this crucial time.
Madidi called on Nigerians to avoid politics of mediocrity, but rather be nationalistic in the quest to usher in a new dispensation and ordercome 2019, noting that “accountability, justice, rule of law and sheerdevotion to service must be regarded as nonnegotiable yardsticks that the next Nigerian President will not only be seen to imbibe, but also radiate.”
