Former Senate president and ex-governor of Kwara state, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has subtly declared his interest to contest for the presidential position of the nation in 2023.
Saraki in an interview on Channels TV programme, Sunday Politics, didn’t fail to blow his trumpet and confidence to win the election, even though “at the moment, we are just doing consultation”.
Speaking, he said; “Like anybody, there are rules; there are guidelines.
“We will have a NEC (PDP) meeting on Tuesday. Hopefully, the guidelines will come out which will tell us definitely where the whistle would be blown.
“Short of anything that stops an individual, I will definitely be announcing sometime before the end of the month, my intention to vie for president. At the moment, we are just doing consultation. Formal declaration will come in due course.
“I believe I have what it takes to lead Nigeria. I am not someone who shies away from taking up challenges. I am not someone who does not know the issues or someone who does not have the energy and vibrancy to address those issues.
“More importantly, I am someone that can reach out across the political divide, based on my antecedents. I am someone who can reach out across the ethnicity divide and across the religious divide.”
