The former governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has claimed that supporters of President Muhammad Buhari are opposed to the prospect of ex-Lagos Governor and APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu becoming president in 2023.
Speaking in Kano during an interview, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said that the promoters of the Buhari Presidency would most certainly shun Tinubu’s candidacy in 2023, fearing that his emergence would automatically dwarf their 8-year performance and erase their place in history.
According to Lamido, “In 2023, the emerging political scenario is that anybody with a personality, they would not put him there. If you put Tinubu there, he would bury Buhari’s achievement. This is because Tinubu is focused; he knows what he is doing as a leader. He builds people, he builds the economy. He has so much going for him that they just envy him.
“And therefore, they would never allow him to get to the Presidency because if he gets there, his achievements would simply bury Buhari’s and make nonsense of his Presidency. They would not allow him,” Lamido said emphatically.
