2023 Presidency: Trouble for Atiku, Peter Obi as Powerful Northern Politician Backs Tinubu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Kaduna state, Uba Sani, has said that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is the most qualified of all candidates jostling to be the next president of Nigeria in 2023. Sani, an incumbent Senator representing Kaduna Central, said Tinubu fought and paid his dues for the enthronement of democracy in the country today while other presidential candidates were mere military apologists, The Punch reported.

Sani spoke at the award ceremony of the Association of Lagos State Indigenes in Kaduna State, during the ‘Isokan Omo Eko Day’, in the state capital on Sunday, October 2nd. He said: “You cannot compare Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu with other Presidential Candidates, because they were nowhere to be found when Asiwaju and people like us were fighting for the enthronement of the democracy we now enjoy today.

“Today, we have the democracy we fought for, I believe it is the turn of Asiwaju to be President of our great nation because he has what it takes to move Nigeria to a greater height. None of the other candidates has his record of achievements and we believe he will perform excellently well.”

The development followed the lawmaker’s courtesy visit to the Grand Patron of the Igbo Community, Ozo Chief Francis Naegbuna, Ozo Ndigbo and representatives of the Ogbo Community, headed by President-General – Chief Francis Ani. The lawmaker, in a statement on Monday, September 26, noted that the Igbo community has also expressed their readiness to “mobilize extensively to ensure it comes to fruition.”
