2023 Election: Tinubu, Buhari Agreed On Power Shift To Southwest – Says Lagos APC
The caretaker chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state, Mr Tunde Balogun, has disclosed that the founding fathers of the party had an agreement in 2014 that the southwest geopolitical zone will produce the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election.
Balogun made the disclosure to a Punch correspondent on Saturday, December 12, adding that it would be dishonourable for the party to jettison the agreement now.
He added that President Muhammadu Buhari, the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and many other founding fathers of the ruling party entered into the agreement at the time.
“According to the 2014 agreement, the southwest should be the zone to produce the presidential candidate in 2023. Among them (those present) were President Buhari and Asiwaju Tinubu.”
