The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will build on the foundation currently being laid by President Muhammadu Buhari if he emerges the latter's successor in 2023.
The above is the declaration of Lanre Razak, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and ally of Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state.
Daily Sun reports that Razak argues that Tinubu is eminently qualified to take over power from Buhari in 2023.
He also urged the APC not to renege on the principle of zoning the presidency to the southern part of the country in 2023.
Razak recalled the role played by Tinubu in the emergence of Tinubu in 2015 as well as the defeat of the now opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The chieftain also recalled how Tinubu has helped to stabilise Nigeria's democracy.
“Nigerians do not need to look far to know that the APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, is the man that the presidential cap fits for the next election.
“He is eminently qualified to succeed President, Muhammadu Buhari and build on the foundation the latter is currently building," he said while calling Tinubu an achiever, whose democratic credentials and role in the formation of the APC cannot be overlooked.
He said the role played by Tinubu against misrule in Nigeria misrule "has made it crystal clear that with him in the saddle in 2023, Nigeria would be better for it.”
He described Buhari as a principled person who would not fall into the trap of being pushed for a third term in office as being speculated by those he described as 'professional sycophants'.
