President Muhammadu Buhari in an interview with Channels TV on Wednesday, said the person he wants to succeed him in 2023 might be eliminated if he names him now.
President Buhari was asked if he has a favourite presidential candidate among those seeking to succeed him in 2023, Buhari said he would rather keep the name of the person to himself, saying he may be eliminated before 2023.
“I wouldn‘t (mention the name of my favourite successor) because he may be eliminated if I do. I better keep that a secret,” Buhari said.
ORBITNEWS reports that majority of those interested in Buhari’s job are yet to declare their ambition, but some of those being rumoured include, former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Chief Bola Tinubu, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, Senator Rochaa Okorocha, Senator Ibikunle Amosun and a host of others.
