Saraki, who made this known in Jalingo, Taraba State while interacting with delegates and stakeholders of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), felt sad that Nigeria as a nation, has gone through so much.
He said, “We can not have the same type of leaders tomorrow as we have today. It is about the future of this country and our children. We need to do things differently.”
Wondering why the present leadership of the country under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has not been able to addressed the predicaments bedeviling the country, the nation, in his view, needs a “competent” leader to rescue Nigeria.
Saraki, who took steps further to admit that the country has been so divided, Nigerians, in his opinion, he believed “cannot afford to use sentiments to vote.”
