I’ll help PDP take over Lagos in 2019 – Saraki

Posted on

Senate President and presidential aspirant of People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Dr Bukola Saraki has vowed to help his party defeat the All Progressives Congress in Lagos in 2019.

Saraki, was speaking at the PDP secretariat in Lagos State where he was endorsed as favourite candidate.

He said he had the medicine of the man terrorizing Lagos State.

He said: “What you have been fighting for many years, you will have it during the coming election because you now have somebody that has intention and charisma to deal with those disturbing you.

“I have a medicine of the man who regards himself as godfather terrorising Lagos State. We have their formula, come next year, PDP will take over Lagos.”

Saraki also cautioned about restructuring as he said it was not something a president could
single-handedly promise as it required the input of the legislature.

He said: “Many aspirants will tell you that they will restructure Nigeria, but don’t let them deceive you because restructuring is not something only a president can do because certain laws also need to change.

“So you need a president that has political sagacity to carry people along. But there are very few aspirants today that possess such charisma. Once I assume office, I will devolve more powers to the state.’’
