Tinubu Should Replace Buhari In 2023 — Babachir Lawal

Babachir lawalEx Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal has said Bola Tinubu has the right quality to become Nigeria president.

Recent reports have it that Babachir believes the ex-governor of Lagos state has the right values to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 because it is time for him to leave a legacy.

Lawal disclosed this on Friday, October 18, 2019, in an interview with some select journalists.

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.

“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.”
