Lagos lawyer, Olusegun Bamgbose has claimed that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, orchestrated Yakubu Dogara’s return to APC.
He also claimed that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the 2019 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will also defect back to the APC before the 2023 elections in Nigeria.
Bamgbose made his submissions about the political predictions ahead of 2023 in a statement made available to Naija News on Tuesday.
He added that Tinubu still has his eyes set on contesting the 2023 presidential election and is already putting structures in place to ensure he has a strong northern Christian that can be chosen as his running mate, hence Dogara’s defection.
“Bola Tinubu is certainly not prepared to be caught panting, as things unfold.”
“Tinubu, as a master strategist possibly masterminded Dogara’s defection, to enable him to have a popular candidate, as his Vice, come 2023 Presidential elections.
“His greatest challenge would have been securing a Northerner who is a Christian, as a vice. Someone who will be generally acceptable to the North, and also one whose political pedigree is intimidating.
“Dogara, being the immediate past Speaker of the House of Representatives, to him will be the candidate to look out for.”
