Recall that it was Just this time last week, that Saraki made his intention to challenge President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 known, making him the highest profile challenger to Buhari so far, as the senate president.

So, what informed Saraki’s decision?

Well, according to his statement of declaration, he wants to save Nigeria’s economy from total collapse.

In fact, he believes that the economy of Africa’s largest oil producer is “broken and in need of urgent revival”.

“GDP growth rate has declined. Diversification remains an illusion. Unemployment is at an all-time high. Businesses are shutting down. Jobs are being lost in record numbers, and the capital needed to jump-start our economy is going elsewhere,” Saraki said before declaring to run for president at an event in Abuja.
