Road to 2019 Election: 2019: Saraki Reportedly Warming up to join Presidential Race – It is no longer news of how Senator Bukola Saraki was cleared of false asset declaration by the supreme court, but his political ambition grew wider and larger in such a way positive spikes, waves and drum rolls were heard all over that Senate president Bukola Saraki is warming up to join the race for the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in August.
A report by a popular publishing company claims that sources in his camp said he has been consulting his associates, political strategists, and well-wishers in the last 24 hours.
Saraki travelled to Port Harcourt, Rivers state on Saturday to commission some projects executed by Governor Nyesom Wike. The Rivers state governor is said to be the arrowhead of PDP’s plan to stage a comeback next year and he is also said to be the one who sponsored the election of Prince Uche Secondus as the national chairman of the PDP.

However, the uncertainty of events makes raves of news unbelieving at time. There is always an element of doubt in half-baked news regarding politicians (today-truth, tomorrow-false). This can be accertained by the Dino Melaye Saga of his switch from APC to PDP which later excalated to a “Rejection Motion” by the Kogi State PDP. His trip to Port-Harcourt can be a mere visit, a purposeful propaganda, a political missle-tustle or an official backed journey.
This news is said to have thrown the camps of Governor Aminu Tambuwal, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso and former vice president Atiku Abubakar into confusion. Governor Tambuwal and Senator Kwankwaso, who are co-drivers of the Reformed-All Progressives Congress(R-APC) are also interested in the PDP presidential ticket and sources said it was their primary reason for wanting to return to the party having found out that they could not wrestle the ticket from President Buhari in the APC.
According to a source knowledgeable about the relationship between Atiku and Saraki, the Senate president’s latest move is an “upset and contrary to the discussion by the two leaders in a country in the Middle East.”
The source said: “What was agreed upon by Saraki, Atiku and other contestants was that whoever secured the presidential ticket would be supported by all.” The Supreme Court verdict on Saraki is said to have played a big role in changing the permutations in the R-APC and the PDP. Investigation also showed that Friday’s ruling of the Supreme Court which cleared him of any corruption stigma was the ‘joker’ Saraki needed to rescue his political career.
According to report, Saraki has ruled out remaining in APC or backing Buhari for re-election because he feels he will “not be able to have moral and emotional stamina to campaign for Buhari in view of his humiliation at the Code of Conduct Tribunal and the police on Offa robbery.”
