Saraki will not run against Buhari in 2019 'out of respect'
He was speaking on a weekly Hausa Programme aired on DITV/Alheri Radio monitored in Kaduna on Saturday, monitored by Sunday Trust.
Baba-Ahmed said: “There is no way Senator Bukola Saraki will contest for president in 2019 as long as President Buhari will contest. This I know very well because I work with him and I should know that.
“But if President Buhari says he will not re-contest the position, that is a different case. The Senate President will not contest against President Buhari because he sees and respects him as a father.
"The same thing happened in 2011 and 2015 if you remember. Saraki declined to contest against him; instead, he joined others to work for the success of the president in the 2015 elections."
He said he was not aware if Buhari will seek re-election.
