Senate President Bukola Saraki has dismissed reports that he is plotting to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

Saraki had previously revealed that he is actively considering running for the position of President in 2019.

But in a statement on Thursday by Saraki’s Special Assistant on New Media, Olu Onemola, he explained that his principal stating that he was “considering” cannot be interpreted to mean a declaration.

Onemola said: “Considering’ is not a declaration. At the appropriate time, the President of Senate will be specific about his aspiration for 2019.

“Moreover, the Bloomberg interview was 90% on the economy, and not politics.

“The President of the Senate has been clear that at the right time, Nigerian’s will know what his plans are.”
