Babagana Kingibe, a former running mate to MKO Abiola, has endorsed the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu as Nigeria’s next President.
Kingibe said Tinubu would be Nigeria’s next president due to his sacrifices.
The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, spoke during a meeting with Tinubu over the weekend.
“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, "he said.
Last Wednesday, Tinubu emerged as the APC presidential candidate after polling the highest number of votes at the party’s primary election in Abuja.
The APC National Leader polled 1,271 votes to defeat other presidential aspirants in the party.
