*Bukola Saraki Campaign Advocacy Council Visits Party Secretariat*
……Solicits Support for Saraki’s Presidential ambition.

Earlier today, the State Working Committee members of our party received in audience the Campaign Advocacy Council of Senator Dr. Bukola Saraki led by Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher. The Campaign Council arrived the Secretariat around 9am.

Speaking during the consultative meeting, the Spokesperson of the campaign council, Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher thanked the leadership of the Party for the reception accorded them, stressing that Cross River State has always been a good neighboring state to the North, especially North Central. Speaking about Bukola Saraki’s Presidential ambition, the Spokesperson declared that hope has arrived with the coming of Dr. Bukola Saraki.

“I want you to rejoice with us because hope has arrived. Nigerians are victims of broken promises. We are faced with leadership failure. Failure to provide good leadership to manage the resources of this country. We have bad leaders with bad management taking loans without concrete plans on how to repay. This is the time to look for qualitative leadership to pull Nigeria to the greatest height. A president that is not a product of Zoning but competence. For even if we are to talk about zoning, North Central where Bukola Saraki hail from, is yet to produce a president. For Bukola Saraki, he will serve as a nexus between the young and old as he is relatively young. His experience as former Governor and Senate President is another considerable advantage”

Reacting to the comment made by the Spokesperson, the State Chairman of the Party, Hon. Barr. Venatius Ikem thanked the campaign council for coming to Cross River State. He reiterated the commitment of the party to competence and capacity.

“My path with your Principal has crossed even to the other generation. I coordinated for Bukola’s father, Oloye when he ran for Presidency in 1992. I was the Chairman of the Electoral Panel that delivered Bukola Saraki as Governorship Candidate. By the grace of God, I will be here to assist him become President. So, I welcome you specially, especially on this agenda, the Saraki Agenda. We in Cross River State like you’ve heard had an accident that has tagged us an opposition State but the reality on ground will always testify differently. We are the surest State for PDP. I am delighted whenever I see a team with people of high intellectual capabilities and experience. As Chairman, I have to manage all the contending aspiration that comes to us but ultimately, it is God that gives power. Within the Chairmen forum, there’s a lot of talk about capacity because we have all seen what just Politics has done to us. Last year, Nigeria used 4trillion Naira just to service debt, not to repay debt, and if you remember, our budget was about 12trillion Naira. Which means, very soon we will be using half of our budget to service debt. This is a serious disaster and I fear for tomorrow. So, we need people with the capacity to navigate their way through the economy and other sectors”
