Saraki reiterates credentials as potential President ahead of 2023 elections

Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has said he is capable of leading Nigeria.

He said this during an interview on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics, March 13; while responding to questions regarding his interest in the 2023 Presidential election.

“I believe I have what it takes to run Nigeria,” Saraki said.

And went on, “I am not someone who shies away from taking up challenges. I am not someone who does not know the issues or someone who does not have the energy and vibrancy to address those issues.

“More importantly, I am someone that can reach out across the political divide, based on my antecedents. I am someone who can reach out across the ethnicity divide and across the religious divide”.
