Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, today during a meeting with young aspirants in Abuja declared his intention to run for presidency in 2019. It was at a time rumoured that the ruling APC brought up series of criminal cases against the Senate President just to prevent him from decamping to the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
Former Aide to Former President of Nigeria, Mr Reno Omokri, who is also an author came out after Bukola declared his ambition to run for presidency to throw his weight behind him. He also took a slight dig at the presidency by saying ” now that the Senate President has declared his intention to run for presidency, hope we wont be seeing any court case soon.”
See what Reno Omokri said:
Now that the @SPNigeria, @bukolasaraki has declared to run to be @NGRPresident in 2019, we do not want to hear that the DSS, @officialEFCC and the @PoliceNG have suddenly found billions of dollars in a room in his house or that he is the head of a kidnapping ring! #RenosDarts

Nigerians also shared their thoughts by saying:
Reno, you can sure bet next move. But Saraki has proven resilient and that action will cause more political disfavour and harm to the APC. Unfortunately, they just do not think before they act.

Now that the Presidency doesn't want to have a rivals especially like @bukolasaraki and @RMKwankwaso that fall out from their failed admin and joined the national party that back the Interest of Nigerians. Those tools used by PMB's admin will soon start knocking at their doors.
