Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC candidate for president, allegedly claimed once that holding a campaign in the South-East was a waste of time and resources, according to former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal.
The APC member claimed that Tinubu made the remark during the party’s primaries after he named a fellow Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 elections. Tinubu and the APC member afterwards parted ways.
On a Channels Television broadcast, Lawal discussed Tinubu’s chances of winning the upcoming presidential election in February and stated that he had no possibility of doing so.
In addition, he declared that he was still an APC member while endorsing Peter Obi of the Labour Party. During the interview, Lawal stated;
“During the convention, he didn’t even allow us go the South-East.
“He said it was a waste of time and money.”
