A former Senate Speaker and presidential candidate on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform, Senator Bukola Saraki, has chosen the nomination and expression of interest forms to run for the presidency.

The form was purchased for the former Senate Speaker by Nigeria’s Young Professionals.

Speaking shortly after receiving the nomination form, Saraki said: “With your action today, I have no choice but to listen to the voices of young people who make up 62% of the more than 200 million of Nigerians. This is why I want to promise that if I become President of Nigeria, all the positions of Ministers of State in the cabinet will be filled by young people. It’s a promise I won’t break because I believe young people’s ideas are needed to drive modern development efforts.

“I am told that by purchasing the forms many of you have contributed N200,000, N500,000 and the highest is N2m. The initiative and noble effort are perhaps unprecedented in the history of Nigerian politics.

“What you have done is a symbolic message that you instruct me to go to the field and work hard among all our leaders, delegates and other stakeholders to win the PDP presidential ticket in May, as well as thereafter with a decisive victory in the general elections of February 2023.”

Young Professionals chief Abubakar Dan Musa has said he believes in Saraki’s ability to improve Nigeria.
