- Saraki begged Nigerians to reconsider their relationship with the opposition party ahead of the 2023 general elections for it to achieve its aim
A former senate president of Nigeria, Bukola Saraki, has pleaded with Nigerians to give the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) a chance to rule the country again come 2023.
According to the former federal lawmaker, PDP governors are doing so well in their respective states that Nigerians could expect a replication at the centre if they vote the party into power in the next general elections.
The other day we were commissioning projects in…. It is in PDP States that you see their governors doing things and that is why we are telling Nigerians give PDP a chance again and you will see the difference that would happen to the country.”
Punch reports that Saraki said the future of Nigeria relied heavily on infrastructure and a PDP government would deliver on this given the achievements of their governors.
He praised the Delta state government, noting that the opposition party is greatly pleased with his achievements in the oil-rich south-south state.
Legit.ng notes that Nigerians voted for the return of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government in February 2019. Buhari had earlier ousted the PDP from power in 2015 after defeating incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan
Meanwhile, the PDP governor of Bauchi state, Bala Mohammed, on Thursday, March 18, claimed that his party had evidence that it won the 2019 presidential election, not Buhari's All Progressives Congress.
According to him, the mandate was snatched from the party by fraud traceable to conduct of the poll and the activities of security operatives.
