2023: Lawan Best Candidate To Succeed President Buhari – Ukairo
Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, has been identified as the only presidential aspirant that would be totally committed to the peace, unity and implementation of policies and programs of President Muhamadu Buhari, if given the mandate to succeed him.
This was part of the resolutions of a sociopolitical group; Abia North Peace Foundation, ANPF, after its strategic meeting in Abuja.
According to a statement signed by Hon. Gabriel Ukairo, Deputy Director General of the group and made available to newsmen in Umuahia.
According to the statement, after thorough deliberations and nationwide consultations with stakeholders from other groups, on the way forward for Nigeria as President Buhari prepares to exit in 2023, the group came to the conclusion that, Senator Lawan remains the only aspirant among the lot, that will continue and improve upon the programs and legacies of President Muhamadu Buhari.
The statement stated further that, “Having listened to the Senate President and the fact that he has stated that he is contesting to be the president of all Nigerians, we are convinced that he is capable of uniting the country for growth and economic development.
“We are more than convinced that Lawan is the only one who fits into the succession agenda of Mr President and should be encouraged to throw in his hat in the ring.
“We join all well meaning Nigerians, groups and organisations to call on the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to without any further hesitations adopt Senator Ahmed Lawan as its consensus candidate because he has all it takes to unite, develop and turn things around for the good all”, the statement noted.
