On other news making the rounds at this hour, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar may partner with President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the presidential ambition of APC National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. This claim was made by the national Coordinator, Concerned Advocates For Good Governance (CAGG), Olusegun Bamgbose in a statement he gave to the media on Monday. He noted the fact that political stakeholders in the Nigeria are not taking anything for granted and added the former vice president, Atiku Abubakar has made up his mindt o contest again maybe for the last time in the coming presidential election in 2023.
According to Olusegun Bamgbose, “It’s very obvious that the power brokers from the North may not really trust Tinubu’s Presidency, not minding his support for Fulani oligarchy. The North is viewing Tinubu as someone who may eventually rebel against the North, once he gets to State House. The North always wants a candidate who will come out with his true color, not necessarily one who is hiding his true character. Tinubu can’t be trusted with power, that’s the opinion of majority of Northerners. Atiku Abubakar is on daily basis strategizing on how to take over from Buhari come 2023. He has decided to spend any kind of money to achieve this aim. He spent heavily to install Buhari as President, and he believes his money should not go down the drain. As a political strategist, he has foreseen that APC will ultimately not hand over the Presidential ticket to Tinubu come 2023. Based on this, he is seriously scheming to find his way back to APC. The only person that Atiku can’t influence with money is an Angel. Atiku will show his worth come 2021. He will be prepared to spend his last kobo to be the next President of Nigeria. He is likely going to strike a deal with Buhari and power brokers to take over from Buhari, thereby edging out Tinubu. However one should tell Atiku that it’s God that will determine the next President of Nigeria, not man or prophet. Man proposes but God disposes. I’m in the race to spring surprises and eventually win. Atiku’s strategies will certainly fail him. He should forget about leading this country,”
