Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babagana Kingibe has endorsed the emergence of Bola Tinubu as the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) stating that he will be Nigeria’s next President.

Kingibi who was a former running mate to MKO Abiola in the annulled 1993 elections said he would be president due to the sacrifices for the country.

“Eyin lo kan, (you’re the next), he said in Yoruba.

“You will move from Jagaban of Borgu to Jagaban of Nigeria; from Asiwaju of Lagos to Asiwaju of Nigeria. For all your sacrifices, for all your effort, God will reward you this time,” he said.

Last week Wednesday, Tinubu emerged as APC presidential candidate after polling the highest number of votes at the party’s primary election in Abuja.

He defeated his other party chieftains including, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo; Minister of Transport, Rotimi Ameachi, and Senate president, Ahmed Lawan.

The APC National leader polled 1,271 votes to defeat his closest competition who polled 316 votes.
