2023 Nigeria Presidency: Buhari, APC Should Give South-west Presidential Ticket, Lawan Says

Power move toward the South-west in 2023 is the best respect that can be offered on the late Chief MKO Abiola, Ahmed Lawan has said.

Lawan expressed this on Saturday in Yola, Adamawa State, in a meeting with writers.

He, in this way, exhorted President Muhammadu Buhari and his gathering, the APC, to make a stride further by giving over the 2023 presidential ticket toward the South-west.

"The president and for sure our gathering must be careful with disruptive components who are currently advocates of holding power in the north past 2023," Lawan said.

He included, "I have said it previously and I accept that 2023 presidential ticket of the APC must go toward the South-west. Since I made this remark last time, a few individuals from my gathering have been bring forth a plot to suspend me from the gathering yet I am not moved and I will in any case hold my ground that power must go toward the west.

"June 12 Democracy Day is an achievement in Nigeria's history and any individual who grasps majority rules system in Nigeria ought to be glad for what Buhari has done and it takes such a great amount of mental fortitude to do.

"Such a large number of Nigerian pioneers have shied far from speaking or acting about it due to the discussion emerging from the date and dread of being scandalized however this is the thing that Nigerians need, regard, principle of law and respect for the individuals who battled and seeped for popular government and that is the thing that Nigerians ought to recall as noteworthy for this date.

"It was not set apart to demonstrate hatred for or negate anybody but rather to praise the normal worth we share in the faith in majority rule government as the best type of government that would serve this nation and its kin. What's more, Buhari must be adulated during the current day."

On whether the day is broadly worthy, he stated, "I don't think Nigerians rejected it in any capacity, despite what might be expected, it has been invited with immense adulation crosswise over gathering and provincial partitions."
