2023 Presidency: Tinubu Campaigning To Succeed Buhari From London – Omokri

Tinubu

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has claimed that the former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu, is campaigning to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 from London.

Naija News reports Tinubu has been in London, the United Kingdom, since July and is believed to be recuperating after reportedly undergoing surgery.

While in London, his residence has turned to a pilgrimage site of some sort, playing host to many notable individuals and leaders particularly from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Among those who have visited the APC National leader includes President Muhammadu Buhari, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, some current and past APC governors and lawmakers.

In a tweet via his Twitter page on Wednesday, Omokri accused Tinubu of campaigning to govern Nigeria from London after spending over a month in the country.

The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan also claimed President Buhari partially ‘misgoverns’ the country from London.

He, however, wondered why Nigeria gained independence from Britain following the visit of Buhari and Tinubu to the UK.

Omokri wrote: “Bola Tinubu is campaigning to govern Nigeria from London. Buhari partially misgoverns Nigeria from London.

“With the reality of this fact, why did we gain independence from Britain only to shackle ourselves with London based despots who are worse than the British?”

In other news, former Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi has expressed optimism that Nigeria will overcome its many challenges and become a better country.

Sanusi, who is the leader of the Tijjaniyya Movement in Nigeria, however, noted that the change and improvement won’t happen automatically.

For the country to become the Nigeria people dream about, he recommended legitimate action, prayers, and patience.

Naija News reports the former Emir spoke on Tuesday in Sokoto State while addressing members of the Tijjaniyya group from the seven North-western states of Nigeria.

He added that though the current situation looks bleak, the citizens can’t afford to give up on Nigeria and must continue to pray for those in positions of authority instead of abusing or cursing them.
