Saraki, who on Thursday visited Governor Dave Umahi at the Government House in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, said unless President Buhari is sacked from office in 2019 the country may become divided.

The Senate President said his visit to the South Eastern state was in continuation of his 2019 presidential ambition.

Saraki had recently declared his intention to run for president in the next general elections under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He told an audience at the Ebonyi Government House: “There is a high level of uninclusiveness in the country. We must choose leaders that have capacity to move the country forward. What you are seeing in Ebonyi is not by chance, it is because your governor has capacity and that is why you are witnessing development.

“How then can you choose a man with capacity in your state without choosing also a leader with capacity at the national level?

“We will fight poverty, we will fight corruption too and not do a selective corruption fight. We will develop solid minerals in Ebonyi State. We will bring private investors into the country and turn around youth involvement in governance by bringing youths to governance,” he said.

Responding, Governor Umahi commended the Senate President for his commitment to defending democracy in the country.

The governor equally promised to, “hand over a state that is most beautiful, best economy and richest in the country.”
