Bukola Saraki, former President of the Nigerian Senate, has responded to concerns about his graveyard silence on political developments in the past few weeks.
The national leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said he went on annual vacation and was just returning back.
Saraki’s last popular comment on politics was when he came to Kwara to receive new entrants into the PDP at the state level.
There, he had made a controversial statement, suing the decampees to weaponise propaganda ahead of the forthcoming election.
“I just returned from my annual vacation and went straight to Akwa Ibom to join the celebration of the 35th anniversary of the state’s creation,” Saraki wrote on his official Facebook page.
He added: “As I moved around the country in the past few days, I got the feeling that many people are concerned over my seeming silence on recent developments in our party, the PDP. My response is that there are times to speak and be heard and there are times when working silently behind the scene is more productive. This is such a time.”
Bukola Saraki meanwhile believes the PDP and Atiku Abubakar remain the best option for Nigerians in the 2023 polls.
