Babachir Lawal tips Tinubu for president in 2023.
The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, has urged Nigerians to support the National Leader of the ruling party, APC, saying the prominent politician has a good chance to become the next president.
Lawal, who made the declaration in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, while addressing some select journalists, noted that the former governor possesses the qualities of a good modern president to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
He stated that by 2023, power rotation would be one of the legacies President Buhari would be leaving behind, among several others.
Lawal, however, dismissed the chances of an Igbo politician getting the nominations of one of the major political parties because politicians from the region had yet to reach an agreement.
“By 2023 when Buhari’s tenure will be over, he’ll go back to Daura to face his cows like I am doing. But you see, every leader must leave behind a legacy. I will like to see that he leaves behind a legacy of achievement.
“Bola Tinubu is my friend of many years. Buhari is my big boss. Bola Tinubu without prejudice that he’s my friend, will make a good president.
“Other issues notwithstanding, he (Tinubu) will make a good modern president because the presidency these days is scientific.
“Nigerians, by convention, seem to have agreed that there should be rotation of the presidency.”
“But they have not been working together to actualise an Igbo presidency,” he said.
