Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal has said that the Presidential Candidate of the All progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not win the 2023 Presidential Elections.
Lawal, who appeared on Channels Television on Thursday, disclosed that the Candidate of the labour Party, Peter Obi stands a better chance of winning.
He also claimed that Tinubu said campaigning in the South-East was a waste of time and resources during the party’s primaries.
“During the convention, he didn’t even allow us go the South-East,” Mr Lawal said on Channels Television’s Politics Today. He said it was a waste of time and money.”
Mr Lawal has already endorsed the Labour Party’s Peter Obi, although he is still a member of the APC.He broke off with Mr Tinubu after the latter announced a Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 polls.
Mr Lawal and some other APC members had advocated for the appointment of a Northern Christian in order to balance the ticket.
