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.

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.”
