National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG), Olusegun Bamgbose, has said that the country needs a superstar to replace President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

According to him, anything short of this will spell doom for Nigeria.

He stated that the country presently is sick and it needs a messiah that will lay down its life for the country, not one who will take four years to clean up.

He said, “Nigeria will need a superstar to succeed Buhari come 2023, anything short of this may spell doom for this country,” the senior lawyer told us on Friday.

“Nigeria will need someone that is above board, a man that won’t give corruption a breathing space, a highly detribalized man. A man who is fearless, focussed, and friendly.”

Bamgbose believes that the current politicians lack the will and power to rule Nigeria and presidential candidates Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu who are major contenders do not possess good qualities.

“Most unfortunately Atiku and Tinubu, major contenders, do not have these qualities,” he added.

“The biggest nightmare in the political history of Nigeria will be to make a wrong choice of who succeeds Buhari.

“Presently we are faced with the challenges of insecurity, a battered economy, poverty, unemployment, hardship, and corruption, I seriously doubt the survival of this country without a man of mission and passion.

“Nigeria will need the emergence of her Messiah come 2023. Once we miss it in 2023, Nigeria may crash and implode.

“We need a leader that will be determined to once and for all clean up the system and the polity. The truth is that presently our nation is seriously sick and gasping for breath.

“Nigeria will need a superstar to succeed Buhari. We don’t need a leader with a mansion, but one with a mission.

“We don’t need a leader with wealth but one with wisdom. Buhari’s successor has a lot of work to do. Nigeria undoubtedly will need a leader that won’t give excuses for his non-performance.

“The reality is that the system has collapsed and messed up, the incoming President should not be one that will tell Nigerians that it will take 4 years for him to clear the mess.

“We need a leader that should be prepared to lay down his life to move the nation forward. Such a leader should be discovered and elected as the next President of Nigeria,” he said.
