Saraki: I have the requisite skills to address Nigeria’s problems


Former senate president and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bukola Saraki has said that he has the requisite skills to address the problems facing Nigeria.
Speaking while addressing PDP delegates in Akure Ondo state, Saraki who is also a former governor of Kwara state, said, “I am ready, willing and able to play my role as our party’s presidential flagbearer, because I believe that I have the necessary skills to fix Nigeria, the necessary network to bring in more jobs, opportunities and investment into the country; and the necessary backbone to hold people accountable as we work to address insecurity across the nation”.
He said throughout his career, he had demonstrated that he has the capacity to make sacrifices.
“I have shown leadership and competence when it comes to creating jobs, providing almost-free and affordable healthcare, empowering our young people to reach their full potential, and finding innovative solutions to the problems that confront us.
“As governor of Kwara state, we started working on universal healthcare. With as little as N200, people in my home state were able to receive basic healthcare.
“When I was the senate president, we singlehandedly passed a law that makes it compulsory for the government to provide more affordable healthcare in basic healthcare facilities across the country.
“This is because I believe that no country can develop when its citizens still use their disposable income to pay for health services”, Saraki said.
