Former secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will go back to Daura and face his cows after his tenure in 2023.
Lawal stated this while speaking with reporters in Yola, Adamawa state.
Expressing his support for power shift to the south, Lawal said the National leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, Bola Tinubu, will fit to be the next president of Nigeria.
There are reports that Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state, is eyeing the number one position in the country but the top politician is yet to speak about it publicly.
His words, “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,” he said.
“Bola Tinubu is my friend of many years. Buhari is my big boss. Bola Tinubu without prejudice that he’s my friend, will make a good president.
“Other issues notwithstanding, he (Tinubu) will make a good modern president because the presidency these days is scientific. Nigerians, by convention, seem to have agreed that there should be rotation of the presidency.”
Asked to comment on the notion that the north had been preventing an Igbo person from becoming the president, Lawal said: “But they (south-easterners) have not been working together to actualise an Igbo presidency.”
