Babachir Lawal the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation has reacted to the news that he is making plans to defect to the PDP.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that in statement, Dr Lawal said he has no plans to decamp. Explaining that his visit to Atiku Abubakar was misconstrued .
He added that instead of decamping to PDP, he will retire from activate politics to face his farm after President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure elapses in 2023 .
Babachir Lawal’s statement read in part “It has just been brought to my notice that I have defected to the PDP. This is not true. This is fake news.
“Just like other politicians including some in the APC, I visited VP Atiku yesterday to condole him over the death of his PA and I noticed some people took my pictures. I suspect this fake news must have originated from this episode.
“Despite our being in separate political parties, Atiku and I are like brothers and I am always warmly received in his home.
“I am still a member of the APC and have no plans to leave it for any other party. In fact, I am considering leaving party politics altogether so as to remain an elder statesman.
“I had joined politics just because of President Muhammadu Buhari and will therefore have no further motivation to remain so after 29th May, 2023.
“I find the pleasure and comfort of my farms more attractive and rewarding”, the statement said.
