Saraki: Buhari lacks the will to rescue Nigeria – Senate President

Senate President Bukola Saraki has said that the current administration of President Buhari lacks the will to rescue Nigeria.

Saraki said this while speaking to members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state on Friday, September 14, 2018.

The Senate President was in Ondo to gather support for his 2019 presidential ambition.

According to Daily Post, Saraki said “You cannot give what you don’t have. With all due respect to the leadership we have now, they don’t have it. It is time to have the leadership that is vibrant, that’s young, that’s credible, that’s courageous and determined.

“When a man has shown leadership, it’s time to give it to him.

“This project is our project and we think we have a good material to sell.”

He also promised to take the country to greater heights if he is elected President in 2019.

The new order

Speaking further, the Senate President told the Ondo PDP members that Nigeria needs a leader with proven track records.

He said “We have seen the new order in the world and the new order is that young people are the ones in the helms of leadership.

“We all talk about Asian tigers, they did not get there by chance, they got there because they have visionary leaders. It is time for us to bring a visionary leader to Nigeria.

“The greatest problem of this country is leadership because they don’t have vision, they don’t have idea, they don’t know where they want to take this country to.

“Let’s put sentiments aside, it’s time to bring in visionary leaders.”

No progress without unity

Saraki also said that there is need now, more than ever to unite Nigeria if the country is to make progress.

The Senate President said that the country needs a leader who believes in equity and justice.

“The country is at the crossroad, the country has never been so bad, many of the citizens do not have a sense of belonging. You cannot have progress without unity.

“There is need for us to unite this country, there is need for us to have a president that represents everybody’s interest. A president that believes in equity and justice.

“Let us put sentiments aside, let us put a man that can deliver, let’s put a man who has shown that he has delivered before,” he added.

Youths hold rally to support Saraki

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the youths were seen chanting songs in support of Saraki’s presidential ambition.
