President of the Senate and presidential hopeful under Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has assured that the opposition party will win Lagos gubernatorial election come 2019.
In a subtle reference to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Saraki on Monday told party members in the state that he has “the medicine of the man who regards himself as godfather terrorising Lagos State.”
He furthered that “What you have been fighting for many years, you will have it during the coming election because you now have somebody that has intention and charisma to deal with those disturbing you.
“I have a medicine of the man who regards himself as godfather terrorising Lagos State. We have their formula, come next year, PDP will take over Lagos.”
Daily Post reports that Saraki also seized the opportunity to warn electorate to be mindful of the aspirants promising to restructure the country if given their mandate, noting that restructuring goes beyond what a single person can do.

He said: “Many aspirants will tell you that they will restructure Nigeria, but don’t let them deceive you because restructuring is not something only a president can do because certain laws also need to change.
“So you need a president that has political sagacity to carry people along. But there are very few aspirants today that possess such charisma. Once I assume office, I will devolve more powers to the state.’’
