2023 Presidency: My Minsters will be below 35 years- Saraki promises

Ex- Senate President, Bukola Saraki says that his plan is to fill his cabinet with ministers below the age of 35 years if he is elected as president in 2023.

According to him, the policy is in tandem with his notion that the younger generations have a lot to contribute to Nigeria’s development.

The former Governor of Kwara State said this  when some young supporters raise N40 million for his Presidential Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms.

He made this remark in a series of tweets on his Twitter page on Tuesday.

Saraki said the youths, who are young professionals that raised the money were convened by Abubakar Danmusa.

He wrote, “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.

“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.

“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.

“We have our work cut out for us. But the battle to fix Nigeria has just started!”
