Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, Bukola Saraki, a former Senate President, has reportedly made it known that if he’s elected president, the ministers in his cabinet would be below 35 years of age.
Saraki reportedly disclosed this when some young supporters raised N40 million for his Presidential Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms.
Saraki reportedly stated, “Last night, I was truly touched by the gesture of the young professionals convened by Abubakar Danmusa, who helped to raise the N40 million for my Presidential Expression of Interest Form and my Nomination Form.”
He noted, “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.”
He declared, “As it stands, this is a clarion call. This is why I make this promise: when I become President 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.”
He remarked that, “We have our work cut out for us. But the battle to fix Nigeria has just started!”
