A former Secretary-General to the Federation(SGF), Babachir Lawal, has said that no one will deny the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, an opportunity to contest the 2023 Presidential race.
Lawal made these comments during a recent interview with Punch while speaking on power rotation to the south in 2023. In his words;
“Nobody with a clear conscience in the APC will deny Tinubu the opportunity to contest the Presidency. Nobody within the party has the moral right to even put a stumbling block on his path.”
“The party must create an environment that is free and fair for anybody who wants to contest, including Bola Tinubu. Let the delegates, who must have emerged through a similarly free and fair process, decide who they want to vote for.”
“A just and equitable way of doing things is to agree, as gentlemen, that since the North has had its President for the second tenure, the opportunity should be given to the South to produce the next President.”
