‘Saraki will not run against President Buhari in 2019 out of respect’ Hakeem Baba-Ahmed says

By  | 

The Chief of Staff to Senate President Bukola Saraki, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, says his boss will not run against President Buhari in the 2019 presidential election out of respect. Baba-Ahmed said this while speaking on a weekly Hausa Programme aired on DITV/Alheri Radio that was monitored by DailyTrust yesterday.'Saraki will not run against President Buhari in 2019 out of respect'

“There is no way Senator Bukola Saraki will contest for president in 2019 as long as President Buhari will contest. This I know very well because I work with him and I should know that. But if President Buhari says he will not re-contest the position, that is a different case. The Senate President will not contest against President Buhari because he sees and respects him as a father. The same thing happened in 2011 and 2015 if you remember. Saraki declined to contest against him; instead, he joined others to work for the success of the president in the 2015 elections.” he said
