' I’m The Nigerian For All Nigerians’ —


Nigerian Youths Take To Cyber Space To Display Enthusiasm As Former Senate President Bukola Saraki Indicates Interest In Contesting Presidency. 

Bukola Saraki, former senate president, says if he is allowed to lead, Nigerians will “have a greater sense of what it means to be truly Nigerian”.

Although there have been calls for the former senate president to contest the 2023 presidential election, he has not officially declared his intention to run for the position.

In a Twitter post on Thursday, Saraki said Nigerians have been divided along ethnic and religious lines, instead of focusing on critical issues and the capacity of aspirants, and how they can make the country progressive.

Saraki expressed his concern over why citizens would allow issues of the past to shape their future when according to him,  team work and unity is possible. 

“For quite some time now, as a nation, we have focused on the old arguments of ethnicity and regional sentiments, instead of capacity, competence, and other critical issues,” he tweeted.

“However, whenever we watch football and when it is time to celebrate as Nigerians at weddings and other social engagements, we are united. Why should we allow past issues to drag us back and define us? Why do we focus on the old issues that do not define our future?

“This is why, based on my track record, if I am allowed to lead, all Nigerians will have a greater sense of what it means to be truly Nigerian, "he added.
