bukolasaraki - 2019: Saraki Replies "Not Too Young To Run" over Presidential Declaration

Senate President, Bukola Saraki has replied the Not Too Yong To Run Group over a statement it issued yesterday dissociating itself from the Saraki’s 2019 Presidential declaration at an event it organized in Abuja on Thursday.

Below is a statement signed by Yusuf Olaniyonu, a media aide to Saraki;

Our attention has been drawn to a statement issued by the NOT TOO YOUNG TO RUN MOVEMENT on Dr. Saraki’s announcement of his presidential ambition at the event organized by the group in Abuja on Thursday.
We wish to clarify that the group had no prior knowledge of the declaration and therefore had nothing to do with it.

Dr. Saraki was invited to give the keynote speech at the group’s dialogue series. In the course of the speech and while discussing the situation in the country, he mentioned that this was why he wants to contest for the President in order to lead the process of addressing some of the issues he had highlighted.

We wish to note that Dr. Saraki’s intention to contest for the President is no longer a secret as he had hinted at his interest in an earlier interview with Bloomberg.

The Not Too Young to Run Dialogue session was therefore not organised for this purpose.
