2019: Why Saraki Wants To Work With Atiku
The leader of Nigeria's parliament, Bukola Saraki is not sobbing for losing the Peoples Democratic Party presidential ticket to Abubakar Atiku.
Instead, the senator is set to back the former vice president to unseat Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
After taking to twitter to congratulate Atiku, Saraki said he will walk and work with Atiku to spread the positive message of the PDP.
Saraki in a statement signed by his Media Adviser Adviser, Yusuph Olaniyonu hailed his fellow aspirants for running credible and mature campaigns “and working all along to reassure millions of our fellow party members and other Nigerians that PDP will leave the convention venue more united”.
Saraki pointedly expressed his readiness to work together with the PDP Presidential flag bearer to form the next government at the federal and other levels “in a manner that we will unite the country, grow the economy, carry along all stakeholders, empower the youths and make government serve the people better.
“Like I said in my speech at the convention after the official declaration of Alhaji Atiku as winner, all the other aspirants, especially myself, are ready to walk and work with him to spread the positive message of the PDP and his campaigns across the nooks and crannies of the country such that the PDP will win the 2019 general elections.”
According to him, those who expect that the party will degenerate into crisis after the primaries have miscalculated adding that “we will all work for the Atiku-PDP ticket to succeed and contribute ideas into solving the problems confronting Nigeria today.”
