As the drama for who succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) in 2023 gradually unfolds, some members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) at the National level is silently showed interest but tend to deny it in public.
Mr. Lanre Razaq a chieftain of the APC has come out open saying that the APC National leader Ahmed Bola Tinubu should be allowed to succeed Buhari come 2023.
Razaq stated that Tinubu has all the characteristics to head our dear nation. He further insist that Tinubu is the only true leader in APC who can transform the Nigerian Economy into a world class Economy if allowed to run for presidency in 2023.
Addressing the New Telegraph, he recounts what he termed the “financial engineering foundation” laid by Tinubu in Lagos State while serving as Governor.
The foundation has made it easy for other governors who came behind him to operate.
He said: “The public is entitled to their opinion, but God knows that those who sacrificed to build up APC and for Buhari to become president, saved the country and will still see reason to do it again after Buhari’s tenure, and will even do it better.
In the South-West today, the tallest person politically can’t be better than Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, so I will encourage and plead with him to run for the office of president. I know his antecedents, I know his pedigree and I know he can run affairs of Nigeria effectively and smoothly.
“Look at the financial engineering foundation he laid for Lagos State, which explains why governors that came after him found it easy to run affairs of the state.
“I believe that Tinubu can replicate what he did in Lagos State at the federal level, so will I appeal to him to run and I pray to God to give him good health, strength and wisdom to take Nigeria to another level, after Buhari might have taken it to the next level, so that Nigeria can maximize and develop her natural endowment.”
