You should have waited! Nigerians react to Saraki’s declaration for presidency

Senate president Bukola Saraki shook the internet on Thursday, after he announced that he would be contesting next year’s presidential election.

Saraki,  who recently defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) to his former party, the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) made the announcement while delivering a keynote address at a dialogue for young aspirants.

He said:

“It is with all these in mind and taking account of the challenges that I have outlined, that I have decided to answer the call of teeming youth who have asked me to run for President.

“Accordingly, I hereby announce my intention to run for the office of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the coming General Elections in 2019 on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). I do so with the firm conviction that I have what it takes to secure inclusive growth for Nigeria and Nigerians.”

The decision didn’t come as a surprise to many Nigerians as Saraki’s move to the PDP had sparked speculations earlier. However, while some hailed the senate president for the move, a lot, were of the opinion that Saraki should have waited but others, said he didn’t stand a chance at all.
