Buhari Lacks Vision, Capacity, Patience To Lead Nigeria — Saraki Says

Bayelsa Nigeria News 20th September, 2018: President of Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki said President Muhammadu Buhari, lacks the vision, capacity and the patience to develop Nigeria.

Saraki who was in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State in continuation of his nationwide campaign to solicit for delegates’ support for his presidential ambition, ‎said Nigeria needs a young vibrant leader with the capacity to withstand the rigours of governance at all time.

A statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor of Bayelsa State on Media Relations, Mr. Fidelis Soriwei, quoted the Senate President as saying that running governance must be accompanied with the inseparable willingness and capacity to give 24 hours attention to the demands of the job.

According to him, “the Asian Tigers are respected to have developed their countries because of their painstaking commitment and patience in dealing with issues of governance which is lacking in Nigeria.

Saraki appealed to People Democratic Party (PDP) delegates to consider him for the ticket of the party to make the requisite difference in the governance of the country.

“2019 is a very crucial election for this country; we are at the crossroads in this country today. We have never been so disunited as we are today.

“Wherever you go, people ask questions: where do you belong? We need to address the issue of unity in this country; it is time for everybody to have a seat on the table, a time for everyone to have a sense of belonging in this country. It is not about me.




“There is a new order in the world today, wherever we go, we see leaders that have vision, that are ready to develop their country. A lot of us talked about the Asian tiger, but they did not come by chance, or trial and error, they became tigers because they have visionary leaders.

“They are leaders that are ready to defend their countries, that have an idea of what they want to do. As I keep on saying, you cannot give what you don’t have.

“Where we are now, we have a leadership that has no vision for us. We must bring visionary leadership to the presidential level so we can move this country forward.”

Governor Dickson said that the time had come for the country to move away from the evil of bigotry and indeed a leadership founded on feelings of sectional superiority.

He called for a regenerated Nigeria where all Nigerians could be trusted and appointed into sensitive positions irrespective of ethnicity and region.

According to the governor, Nigerians need a country where anybody could be Director of the Department of State Service or Chief of Army Staff and other sensitive positions irrespective of region, ethnicity or religion.

“I agree with you that our nation must move away from bigotry. We must work together and build a new Nigeria for all Nigerians, a nation for the few as well as a nation for the many.

“We need a nation of all Nigerians and not a nation for one ethnic group, religious faith or one geo-political region in Nigeria,” the governor said.

The president is reportedly planning to meet with other APC stakeholders in the state within the week as part of efforts toward resolving the rift.
