Tinubu said campaigning in S’east ‘waste of time and money’ – Babachir
Lawal Babachir, former secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), on Thursday claimed that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu said campaigning in the South-East region was a waste of time and resources during the party’s primaries in May.
The former SGF said this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today
He said, “During the convention, he didn’t even allow us go to the South-East
“He said it was a waste of time and money.”
Mr Lawal made the comment while analysing Mr Tinubu’s chances in the imminent February presidential polls.
According to him, the APC candidate stands no chance of winning the election.
Mr Lawal has endorsed the Labour Party’s Peter Obi, although he is still a member of the APC.
He broke off with Mr Tinubu after the latter announced a Muslim as his running mate for the 2023 polls.
Mr Lawal and some other APC members had advocated for the appointment of a Northern Christian in order to balance the ticket.
