2023: APC is only interested in Tinubu’s money – Former Niger Gov, Babangida

Babangida Aliyu, a former governor of Niger state has said that the APC, will give its presidential ticket for the 2023 general elections to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo and not Tinubu as publicly speculated. 

Speaking on Tuesday at the Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation’s 2022 annual lecture in Kano State, the former governor remarked, referring to APC National Leader Bola Tinubu, that the party will only be interested in his (Tinubu’s) money. 

According to Babangida, any “riff-raff or moneybags” will not get to the highest office in the country, even if they bring out the money.

“No matter how much money he has, let him bring the money and we will collect it, Mr. Vice President, wherever you go, we will follow,” 

He described Osinbajo, who is yet to declare interest in the presidential race as the best candidate for the ruling party saying, “Mr Vice President, do you know you are the best candidate in your party?” 

Babangida noted that Osinbajo candidacy choice has the acceptance of most Nigerians regardless of tribe, religion and political party.
