The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has said that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, does not have the vision, capacity and the patience to lead Nigeria to the Promised Land.
Saraki made the comment yesterday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State when he led his Presidential campaign team on a courtesy visit to Governor Seriake Dickson at Government House.
The Senate President asked Nigerians to replace the current leadership provided by the APC, saying that the party had caused disunity in the country.
Saraki stressed that the country was in dire need of a leader like him with a demonstrable capacity to unite the deeply divided country and create a sense of belonging through fair distribution of appointments in the country.
Saraki is among the 13 presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The former Kwara Governor said, “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 a vision, that are ready to develop their countries.
“A lot of us talked about the Asian tigers, 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, which 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.”
