Senate President Bukola Saraki has submitted nomination forms for the presidential candidacy race of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Bukola Saraki’s next big ambition is to become the president of Nigeria and hold the foremost leadership position in the great country. Many ask, What are his accomplishments thus far? What did he achieve has senate leader that qualifies his to become the president of Nigeria? Saraki is looking to compete alongside Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar and Kingsley Moghalu.
Saraki wrote on Twitter that he had submitted the presidential nomination and expression of interest forms to the PDP at the Abuja headquarters of the party, adding “It is time to #GrowNigeria!” Although this is the first step, it is not an absolute ticket for contesting under the party’s umbrella as Saraki will have to contest at the party’s primary election with former vice president Atiku Abubakar and former Kano State governor Muhammed Rabiu Kwankwaso.
He has fended off calls to resign his post as leader of the Senate because it was a post he got by being an APC member. He insists that it is a role he got from colleague senators and not the party. It can be recalled that Adams Oshiomole the party chairman(APC) and other prominent members of the party have threatened to impeach Saraki if he fails to step down. The Senate is currently on recess and is not known when it will be reconvened.
