Youth groups with PVCs endorse Saraki for president

A group, Coalition of Saraki Advocates yesterday endorsed Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki for president ahead of 2019, describing him as a youthful and experienced prospect among the presidential aspirants.
The groups, while searching for youths with permanent voter cards to mobilize in support of Saraki’s presidential bid in Kaduna, yesterday said one of the criteria to identify with them is proof of obtaining a PVC, and openly asked all those that attended its event to show their cards, to which they obliged before the event continued.
Coordinator of the group, Olas- unkanmi Kolawole, told the youths that it insisted on PVCs to convince people that it is serious about ensuring Saraki not only wins the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket but is also voted in as president of the country.
“COSA has mobilised thousands of Nigerians from different organizations and grassroots across the coun- try with Permanent Voter Cards, a tool to transform and reform, a tool to make changes and a tool to install Dr.
Abubakar Bukola Saraki as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the 2019 general elec- tion,” he said.
Kolawole said Saraki demonstrated humility in leadership when he submitted himself to investigation and court trial over the declaration of his assets until he was exonerated by the Supreme Court.
The group called on President Muhammadu Buhari to play the role of an elder statesman and leave the political space for the youths who are capable of leading the country to greatness, saying Saraki falls within the age of political leaders that pos- sess the ability to transform the country.
“He will offer leadership driven by empathy, where leaders are responsive to the citizens, where they know that government cares and he will not be indifferent or turn a blind eye to the real concern of the people,” he added.
