The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has said that he is considering running against President Muhammadu Buhari in the presidential election billed for February, 2019.

The former governor of Kwara state said he can make the change that Nigeria and Nigerians desire.

He disclosed this in an interview with Bloomberg.

“I am consulting and actively considering it. I believe I can make the change,” he was quoted by Bloomberg.

Saraki, a former chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, defected to the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party. The governors of Benue and Kwara have also defected to the PDP. Fourteen other senators also dumped the APC for PDP and African Democratic Congress (ADC), a party associated with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The PDP is expected to hold its primary election in October.

Saraki also claimed that the PDP has learnt its lesson from the loss in 2015 and stand a chance of leading Nigeria in the right direction.

“We (PDP) have the opportunity with the right kind of presidential candidate, and a president to provide the leadership for the party. The party has a good opportunity to lead the country in the right direction,” he said.
