A former secretary to the government (SSG) of the federation, Babachir Lawal, has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari would retire to Daura to tend to his cows after his tenure ends in 2023.
Vanguard reports that Lawal made the disclosure when speaking on the politics in Nigeria ahead of the 2023 elections with reporters in Yola, Adamawa state.
The politician said he would like to see Buhari leave behind a legacy when his tenure expires.
“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, Babachir Lawal said.
He said people from the south-east have not shown the desire to produce a Nigerian president, noting that politicians from the southeast zone have failed to work together to actualise an Igbo presidency.
Meanwhile, Babachir Lawal has described the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as someone who is fit to lead modern Nigeria.
Though Tinubu has not declared presidential ambition, there are several reports claiming that the former governor of Lagos state is eyeing the Aso Villa seat.
The former secretary to the government said Tinubu has the key qualities required of a modern president.
