Buhari Emerged President Because I Dropped my Presidential Ambition for Him – Saraki

Dr. Bukola Saraki has revealed that he actually quit his presidential bid in the 2015 election for President Muhammadu Buhari.

“I was the first person that stepped down his political ambition, once General Buhari announced that he was going to contest the presidential election. And since then, prior to the period of election, I worked tirelessly to support his emergence.

“Even some of my friends who are not supporting me now are doing so because I did not support them in their presidential ambition and that I supported President Buhari. That is why I find it funny that the same people are now claiming to love Buhari more than me. It is a very funny world.

“These are people that I was begging to leave the stage for Buhari to run since all of us are young. They are now the one going round to say that Saraki did not like Buhari but time will tell.”

The Presidency, however, faulted Saraki’s claim of stepping down for Buhari ahead of the presidential election.
