Saraki: ‘Serious politicians should not be talking about 2019 now’

The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki

"Any serious minded politician that is interested in his people should not be talking about 2019 especially if we want to be honest with ourselves," Saraki said.

Senate President says it would be insensitive for political office holders to be preoccupied with 2019 politicking without meeting their electoral promises to the people.

Saraki stated this at the weekend while speaking with journalists in Ilorin.

The Senate president advised serious minded politicians to focus on delivering the dividends of democracy to Nigerians rather than be engrossed with 2019 to the detriment of good governance.

“2019 is a long way," he said. "Any serious minded politician that is interested in his people should not be talking about 2019 especially if we want to be honest with ourselves, some of the expectations of our people have not been met.

“I think it will be insensitive, if we have left that and we are now talking about 2019. We need to work hard to make sure that we meet those expectations.

“The economy is already moving in the right direction, which is why we are addressing the issue of security, which is good. We are fighting corruption; we need to do more in that area. By the time we work tremendously over the next one year, I think we will be in a position where we can beat our chest and say we have done well,” the Senate president added.
