The National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG), Olusegun Bamgbose claims that Atiku Abubakar may join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari to defeat Bola Tinubu in 2023 for the presidency, Daily Times gathered.
Bamgbose said in a statement that political actors will do anything to grab power in 2023. He also noted that Atiku Abubakar will contest for the last time.
Bamgbose’s statement reads, “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,” he noted.
“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 colour, not necessarily one who is hiding his true character.
“Tinubu can’t be trusted with power, that’s the opinion of the majority of Northerners. Atiku Abubakar is on daily basis strategising 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,” he said.
