Farouk made this assertion when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday, December 8.
Asked what could stop the former governor of Anambra state from winning the 2023 presidential election, Farouk said:
“That is the docility of Nigerians not to select good leaders. If Nigerians feel that they want to continue with the old order, that they don’t want a good leader, a leader that is going to salvage the situation that is up to them.”

Ogun Labour Party crisis: Some members have been compromised
Speaking on the crisis rocking the Ogun state chapter of the LP, Farouk alleged that some members of the party have compromised and allowed themselves to be infiltrated by outsiders.
