Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has been projected as a force to reckon with as far as the 2023 presidential election is concerned according to a group loyal to the ex-lawmaker.

The group which is known as the Forum of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is time for the PDP chieftain to take his place again in national politics.

Saraki was the Senate president in the eighth National Assembly.

A statement by the chairman of the group, Abraham Ashaolu said the north-central, based on its multicultural nature, is best to produce the next president in the person of Saraki for peace and security to reign across Nigeria.

Added to this, the forum alleged that lawmakers from the All Progressives Congress (APC) are working against the only Peoples Democratic Party (APC) member in the state House of Assembly, Raheem Agboola, who represents Ilorin South Constituency.

It, therefore, warned the APC members to refrain from conducts that discredit the integrity of the state's legislative body.
