Senate President Bukola Saraki has urged Nigerians to do more than clamouring for change in the country by ensuring they exercise their franchise during the forthcoming election.

While urging citizens to choose competent leadership over outdated versions, Saraki, who is the director general of the PDP presidential campaign council, said on Sunday, in a statement signed by Yusuph Olaniyonu, his special adviser on media and publicity, that his party is best for the country.

He added that the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the general elections are ready to make Nigeria work again.

“We have all seen how the last four years have gone. It is time for Nigerians across the nation to choose economic growth over poverty; choose security over the growing and fast spreading insecurity; and choose competent leadership over leadership that is outdated,” the statement read.

“If you have ever questioned if Nigeria can be better, coming out to vote with your friends and relatives who have PVCs next Saturday will be your answer.

“It is not enough to tweet about this government or share WhatsApp broadcasts, the time has come for all Nigerians to take their future in their hands and vote for visionary leaders, Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and the PDP slate of candidates who are promising a Better Nigeria and are ready to make Nigeria work again.”
