Senate President Bukola Saraki has advocated for a youthful president for Nigeria against the forth coming 2019 general election to replace president Muhamadu Buhari.
Saraki called on Nigerians to stand united and elect a youthful President with an energetic mind to take the country to its desired height.
The senate president hinted Nigerians on Wednesday evening when he met members of the Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party in Benin, as part of his nationwide consultation on his presidential ambition.
He said many of the citizens do not longer enjoy a sense of belonging owing to the prevalence of a type of governance that was based on sentiments and nepotism by president Buhari.
His words: “The country has never been so divided as it is today; we need to unite this country and in uniting the country, we must have a President that speaks for Nigerians.
“We must have a President with whom everybody will have a sense of belonging. We must have a President that you all feel is representing you. We must have a President and a government where Edo State has its key role on the table, where things are done with equity.
“It is time for us to unite and to do that, we must move away from electing a President based on sentiments. We have done it many times. It has not worked, he added”
