A former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, on Friday, predicted victory for Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the party’s presidential primaries slated for May ending.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Omokri also stated that in the event Tinubu’s challenger in the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), comes from any zone apart from Northwest or Northeast, Tinubu will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
“Barring unforeseen circumstances, Tinubu will win the presidential primaries of the All Progressives Congress,” Omokri wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
“If his challenger in the Peoples Democratic Party comes from any zone other than the NW or NE, then Tinubu will be the President of Nigeria in 2023.”
Tinubu, 70, might be among the frontrunners to succeed Buhari, whose tenure as president ends in May 2023.
He says he is in the race for the 2023 presidency to bring hope to Nigerians.
