Posters of the immediate past president of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, were sighted in conspicuous areas of Abuja on Tuesday, fueling speculations that he might soon declare his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election.

 

Our correspondent sighted some of the posters at the Wuse area of the nation’s capital and at the national secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, popularly known as Wadata House in Abuja.

 

Saraki’s picture was displayed in the poster tagged, “Reset Nigeria 2023: Abubakar Bukola Saraki for President”.

 

The media aide of the former senate president, Yusuph Olaniyonu, however, told our correspondent in a telephone interview that he knew nothing about it.

 

He said, “If Senator Bukola Saraki wanted to contest for president, he will address a world press conference to make his intention known.

 

“We don’t know where the posters come from, we did not post them.”

Meanwhile, the PDP Youth Initiative has called for the zoning of the party’s presidential ticket to the North-Central region.

 

The youths made the call after the congress where the Zonal Chairman, Theophilus Shan, was returned unopposed.

 

They said their call was to “deepen democratic engagement, restore Nigeria on the path of honour and glory, and ensure that our people truly benefit from the dividends of democracy”.

 

The group told PDP that the middle belt has produced notable men and women “who have been able to provide key leadership at crucial times since Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999″.

 

Noting that Saraki was a good choice, they said: “He has been able to bring together all warring factions within the PDP while helping to restore sanity to the party by making sure all differences that exist are amicably resolved.”
