Babagana Kingibe, a former secretary to the federal government, has assured Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, that he will be Nigeria’s next president in 2023.
In a weekend meeting with Tinubu, Kingibe stated that the former Lagos governor will be Nigeria’s next president as a result of his sacrifices.
“Eyin lo kan, (you’re the next), he said in Yoruba.
“You will move from Jagaban of Borgu to Jagaban of Nigeria; from Asiwaju of Lagos to Asiwaju of Nigeria. For all your sacrifices, for all your effort, God will reward you this time.”
Kingibe was MKO Abiola’s running mate in the 1993 presidential election, but after the June 12 election was nullified, he went on to serve under Sani Abacha’s military administration.
