Ahead of the 2023 general election, Senator Bukola Saraki has urged Nigerians not to allow sentiments to becloud their choice of president.

The presidential aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), stated this in Calabar on Wednesday, April 27, while consulting with party delegates ahead of the PDP primaries scheduled for Saturday, May 28, and Sunday, May 29.

According to the former governor of Kwara State, 2023 would be a defining moment for Nigeria as the glaring challenges of insecurity; disunity, unemployment, and poor economic growth have become overwhelming.

“We need to rescue this nation, we can not allow emotions; and sentiments to becloud our judgment in picking the right leader for this nation in 2023.

“We do not have the luxury to vote for someone on the basis of religion, tribe, and tongue; we just have to rescue this nation.

“And as such, we need a particular kind of president who understands the economy; and the fact that it is the only way to take the country to where it should be.

“If you give me the opportunity to lead this nation, I will leave Nigeria better than I met it; because I have experience both in the executive as a governor and the legislature as president of the senate,” Saraki appealed to the delegates.

Further, he maintained that Nigeria needs a president who is a team player; and had people from all parts of the nation on his team because you cannot lead a nation if you cannot unite the people.

He said the nation’s revenue comes largely from the sale of crude oil, adding that if he becomes the president, he would increase gas production to 3 billion cubic feet.
