The Senate president, Dr Bukola Saraki, said he is considering contesting the 2019 presidential election and promising to make the change which has eluded Nigeria. He mentioned this in an interview with Bloomberg, where he expressed concerns about the invasion of the National Assembly, by operatives of the Department of State Services.
“I am consulting and actively considering it …I believe I can make the change.” He said.
Saraki, who recently decamped from the All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party added that he would not be surprised if the government used security agencies for elections.
The President of Senate added that investors and Nigerians have lost confidence in Buhari thus Nigeria needed to be governed by a genuinely pro-business administration that would be able to tackle recurrent security issues.
“Most of the inflows that have come in are merely hot money, and that is because the oil price has gone up. Investment in the real sector is not seen. The private sector, in my view, has probably taken a position that the confidence is not there in the government. The country requires a government that is truly pro-business and a President that sees himself as a chief marketing officer.” Saraki said.
