Former Senate President Bukola Saraki has expressed interest in running for president in 2023.
Saraki declared his interest after the former national leader of All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Ebonyi Governor Dave Umahi, Senator Orji Kalu, and former Imo Governor Rochas Okorocha have all expressed interest in the position.
Former Governor of Kwara claimed he had a proven track record of delivering results and making difficult decisions.
Saraki is the son of late Second Republic Senator Olusola Saraki, who was born on December 19th, 1962.
In 2011, he was elected to the Senate for the first time, and in 2015, he was elected Senate President.
On his official Facebook page, Saraki said: “Earlier, I replied to a follower of mine on Twitter who like thousands of you has been clamouring for a united front to #RescueNigeria.
“As we prepare for the journey ahead, I hope we can all join hands to get the ticket of our great party, PDP, and build a nation that works for all of us.
“Join me to make our communities safer and provide real opportunities for you and your families. I have a strong record of delivering and experience in making tough decisions.
“Let’s build a new Nigeria that works for EVERYONE!”
