Oba said: "If Bukola Saraki emerges victorious in the 2019 general elections, Nigerians should expect exemplary leadership, impactful service and result-oriented representation. Government will be brought to the doorsteps of all individuals and every person will be able to say- with a chest-beating assurance- that he/she benefitted immensely from having Saraki as the president of this great nation."
“Saraki is a noble man; an exemplary leader; an impactful figure; a man of timber and caliber; of gusto and panache; a man on a mission to salvage our dear country from its precarious state and make it the true giant of Africa, not just on paper but in all facets of reality. Let’s support Bukola Saraki to take Nigeria to greater heights”.
Oba, who added that Saraki is a son of the soil and exemplary leader, also described youths as bedrock of leadership. He added that they must ensure that politicians with physical agility and youth-oriented master plans are voted in 2019.
He said: "The youths have remained a bedrock of the nation and it is high time they are given chance to lead the nation in order to contribute more to the socioeconomic growth of the nation.”

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Saraki's presidential ambition had once again been lampooned by the All Progressives Congress (APC), which described it as a huge joke.
In a statement released by the APC’s national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, on Wednesday, September 5, the party stated that it was concerned about issues of integrity, competence and capability to preside over the affairs of the country, even as it acknowledged that it is the free right of any Nigerian citizen to aspire to become president.
