Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Sunday disclosed that Kwara State will get the Senate President slot if the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), candidate, Atiku Abubakar, wins the 2019 presidential election.
Saraki spoke at reception by residents of Offa, where he led members of his party at a campaign rally in the local government.
Atiku will slug it out with President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on February 16.
Saraki said: “I had earlier told my people that they can’t do the Offa campaign in my absence. They may do those of others but not this one. Offa and Ilorin have a long history of the relationship. Once the two would agree on anything it is taken. I see myself as a son of Offa.
“Our campaign has a definite plan for Kwara state and Nigeria. Since we joined the PDP the party has honored Kwara state, they gave us DG of Campaign, National Leader of the party and have agreed that if the party wins, Senate President is our slot in Kwara. But what has the other party to offer? If I have a skeleton in my cupboard this government would have silenced me and forced me to drop the campaign.
“But for God and the support of the people, I would not be standing today. They didn’t want to honor our agreement. We all labored and what they couldn’t get in three times they got it and we demanded that they give to Kwara what we deserve.
“We need to teach our seasonal politicians a lesson on the poll date. We want community development, let everybody come and contribute their quota to our communities; when Saraki do his own and let them too do their own. I heard that some politicians have been buying JAMB forms in 2019. The question to ask is where were they in 2016, where were they in 2017?
