I’ll Teach You How To Defeat Tinubu In Lagos, Saraki Tells Lagos PDP

LAGOS—Senate President and presidential aspirant of Peoples
Democratic Party, PDP, Dr Bukola Saraki, yesterday, excited members of
the party in Lagos as he assured them that he will do everything within
his reach to ensure PDP produced the next governor of the state.

Saraki, who spoke at the PDP secretariat in Lagos State, where he was
endorsed as favourite candidate, 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 warned Nigerians to be mindful of presidential aspirants
promising to restructure Nigeria, if elected president.
He said restructuring agenda 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.’’

On unemployment
On unemployment, Saraki said no government could create enough jobs,
stressing that it was only private sector that could do so.

He said: “You need a president that can speak private sector language.
So, this is the time to elect the right president to lead the country.
“In Nigeria, we are at the crossroads and we need to save the soul of this
country because we have not been so divided like we are currently across
the country.

In his response, Acting Chairman of Lagos State PDP, Alhaji Wali Hassan,
assured the Senate President of their support, even as he commended
him for the love he had for the party in Lagos.
Bola Tinubu
“As you can all see, he had his primary and secondary school education in
Lagos and his wife is a Lagosian, so we are going to support him,” Hassan

On his entourage were former Minister of State for Power, Alhaji
Mohammed Wakili; immediate past governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris
Wada; Dr. Doyin Okupe, former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs
to former President Goodluck Jonathan; Senator representing Kogi West,
Dino Melaye; and Chairman of the defunct nPDP, Kawu Baraje, among

Buhari presiding over a divided Nigeria
Meanwhile, while meeting with delegates in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Saraki
described Nigeria under the control of President Muhammadu Buhari as
a divided nation, where citizens don’t have a sense of belonging.
He said: “Today in Nigeria, we are here at the crossroads. The country is
divided and to unite the country, we need someone who will make
everybody feel a sense of belonging. Today, there is no sense belonging
in some parts of the country.

“We need a president that rules and represents Nigeria. We want a
president where everybody will say they belong here. Where there is no
unity, there can never be progress. After unity, we can talk about
development and progress.”
