Kwara 2019: I Have No Anointed Candidate-Saraki



Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki has disclosed that he has no anointed candidate for any political post for forthcoming general elections, stressing that the people would determine their representatives.

Saraki stated this on Wednesday during a meeting with members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State at Banquet Hall, Ilorin.

The Senate President said his return to the PDP was meant to bring justice and equity for all, as well as the needed progress in the state.

He called on public office holders in the state and across the country to work together for the interest of the citizens and not for personal gains.

Saraki defected to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in July citing allegations of disunity as some of his reasons for dumping the ruling party.

His defection has generated reactions from APC leaders, including the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, who called for his resignation as Senate President.

The latest reaction is a statement issued by APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, on Sunday in which he accused the lawmaker of coveting the Presidency.
