Atiku will defect back to APC before 2023, Olusegun Bamgbose reveals in a chat with DAILY POST . He said Bola Ahmed Tinubu will never be supported .
Olusegun Bamgbose is a Lawyer and the National Coordinator Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG. In the chart he broke down with details why he is convinced the northern cabal will not support Bola Tinubu to achieve his presidential dreams.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that Bamgbose said Tinubu’s ambition has hit the rocks already . Read his words below :
“As we draw closer to 2023 Presidential race and politicians are busy strategising on how to be relevant, I foresee Atiku defecting back to APC.
“This may seem absurd and incredible, but it will come to pass. This, however, is conditioned on APC not splitting before the end of 2021.
“The ignoble sack of Oshiomhole, by the power brokers in APC, has, in fact, signaled a new dawn in APC. Other things being equal, APC is getting set to zone its presidential slot to the North.
Bamgbose said that the APC working on zoning the presidential slot to the North and that’s what will attract Atiku Abubakar back to APC.
“This is what will ultimately entice Atiku to return back to APC. One does not need a prophet to tell us that Tinubu’s presidential ambition has hit the rock.
“The Northern oligarchy won’t back him come 2023. The North hardly backed a multi-billionaire to become President of Nigeria.
He argued that the Northerners do not back billionaires to rule Nigeria. He buttressed his point with Shagari, Buhari and Obasanjo as examples.
“Their belief is always that, what else do you want? In 1979, Shagari was not a billionaire.
“He was a teacher, but he became the first Executive President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He ruled from 1979 – 1983 before he was overthrown by Buhari.
“In 1993 M. K. O. Abiola was a multi-billionaire, he contested, possibly won but the power brokers rejected him. In 1999, Olusegun Obasanjo was favored.
“As at the time he contested, he was not a multi-billionaire. The power broker supported him. I’ll skip Jonathan for obvious reasons.
“In 2015, Buhari was not a billionaire yet he defeated Jonathan. I seriously doubt if the North will want Tinubu as President.
Finally he advised Atiku and Tinubu not to run in 2023 as it won’t favor them .
“Atiku has failed several times because of the same reason. I’ll advise Atiku and Tinubu to forget contesting 2023 Presidential elections because it’ll be an effort in futility.”
