Saraki: All of my cabinet ministers will be under the age of 35 if I am elected president.

“When I am elected President… All of my Cabinet’s Ministers of State will be experienced young people under the age of 35.

FastNews reports that Bukola Saraki, the former Senate President, has expressed gratitude to some young Nigerians who donated N40 million to purchase his presidential nomination form.

Mr. Saraki claims that this gesture has inspired him to “fight twice as hard” as he had planned to achieve his goal.

“Last night, I was deeply moved by the generosity of the young professionals convened by Abubakar Danmusa, who helped raise N40 million for my Presidential Expression of Interest Form and Nomination Form.”

“These young people, who went out of their way to rally their friends, family and coworkers, made contributions of N500,000 to N2 million to reach their desired goal.

This symbolic gesture, a first of its kind in the history of our nation, is also a challenge to me. Now, I promise to work twice as hard as I originally intended.

“I promise to meet the yearning and aspirations of all our young people to run a modern government that can achieve sustainable development,” Mr Saraki said in a statement released on his Facebook wall.

In a tweet, Saraki also promised to make sure all his Minister of State are youths.

“As it stands, this is a clarion call. This is why, I make this promise — not out of politics or propaganda— but out of the fervent belief that young people have a role to play in the development of our nation:

“When I become President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the 29th of May 2023, all the Ministers of State in my Cabinet will be experienced young people who are under the age of 35.

“Yes, we have our work cut out for us. But the battle to #FixNigeria has just started!” He added.
