Pressure Mounts on Saraki To Run For Presidential Race

Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki is now under immense pressure to run for the Presidency in 2019, insiders have revealed.

We gathered that many young turks in  and outside his party now see him as the only man who can rescue the party for seeming disaster and by extension taking Nigeria out o its present state following the announcement during the week by President Muhammadu Buhari that he would run for another 4 year-term.

Immediately after the announcement, the stock market fell and the social media comments showed that the President who came to power in an avalanche of peoples’ support has lost his shine. Many people are stating that Buhari had not fought corruption as promised and the economy had not fared better than it was before 2015.

Though the presidency and those in government will argue that things are getting better, the reality on ground is terrible.

Apart from the economy, the herdsmen attacks that has ravaged the North central part of Nigeria especially means that the President will lose a huge chunk of block votes in the region which helped him coast to victory against all odds.

It is because of these and other reasons that people are now seeing Saraki as an alternative who is young, cerebral and charming.

It will be recalled that an online newspaper, The Boss , had reported that the Senate President had  joined the Presidential race but multiple sources has stated that since he has kept mum after the story broke, it is an indication that Sarakai his mind is not yet made up
