Babachir Lawal former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) has revealed that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the best candidate to replace President Buhari upon the expiration of his tenure in 2023.
Babachir made this revelation during an interview with The Sun. He also said Atiku’s political career is over.
According to him, Tinubu who is also the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has built a reputation of grooming commendable leaders such as Fashola, Ambode and Sanwo-olu who is at the starting point of his political career.
It would be recalled that Babachir Lawal was sacked as SGF in 2016 following allegations of diversion of funds going up to N500million in grass cutting scandal.
The former SGF noted that it takes a good leader to raise another one. He stated that the succeeding governors have been building on the solid foundation the APC Chieftain had laid in Lagos state.
“He was a good governor of Lagos State. That is why all his successors are working on his footprint.”
“Even though some of them wanted to claim that they know, they found out that the structure he laid is a solid one.”
“People can insult him, but every governor consistently builds on his structure to the extent that Lagos State has consistently produced the best governors in their dispensation starting from Tinubu, Fashola, Akinwunmi and Sanwo-Olu, who is just starting. ”
“I am advocating that the best man should take over from Buhari. And for now that best man is Bola Ahmed Tinubu who is from the Southwest by coincidence,” said Babachir Lawal
Speaking about opposition candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the former SGF disclosed Atiku would have made a good Leader but it appears his political career is over
“I think his political career has fatigued or it is over.” said Babachir
