The President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has declared his interest in the 2019 presidential contest.
Saraki made the declaration on Tuesday at a meeting he had with aspiring young politicians across the country.
The declaration is coming after the president of the Senate visited Nigeria’s former leaders.
The former rulers of the country he visited in the last two weeks were Olusegun Obasanjo, Goodluck Jonathan and Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.
Saraki recently defected from the All Progressives Congress to the Peoples Democratic Party.
