2023: ‘Cabal Around Buhari Want Atiku, Not Tinubu To Win Election’



The National Vice Chairman (North West) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Salihu Mohammed Lukman says there are speculations the cabal in the presidency does not want the party’s candidate, Bola Tinubu to win the 2023 election.

He said there are feelers that the cabal is supporting the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Lukman made the allegation in a statement on Thursday in Abuja in which he submitted that part of the agenda is to frustrate Tinubu’s ambition by introducing the ill-timed naira swap policy.

According to him, if the idea was not to demarket Tinubu, then those close to President Muhammadu Buhari should have advised him against implementing the policy.

The APC National Vice Chairman however added that they are working hard to ensure a victory for Tinubu at the forthcoming polls despite the powerful opposition.


He promised that if elected, Tinubu’s administration would be a great improvement to Buhari’s government and have a better listening ear to Nigerians and party leaders.

Part of the statement reads, “If, however, the speculated objective of any so-called cabal is to frustrate the February 25, 2023 elections by either creating conditions that could mobilise electorates to vote against the APC and its candidates, especially Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, God willing it shall not succeed.

“The only person that possibly is not frustrated with the policy is Alh. Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP who is supporting the policy, which is why many people argue that the ‘cabal’ around the president want Alh. Atiku Abubakar to win the election.

“As members of APC, we are working hard to win the 2023 elections, but we also will work even more harder to ensure that our next government to be led by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will come with more listening ears to Nigerians and fellow party leaders.

“God willing Asiwaju Tinubu’s APC government must be a remarkable improvement on President Buhari’s government whereby party leaders will through all our organs as provided in our constitution effectively and efficiently take all necessary decisions, which would be respected by Asiwaju Tinubu as President of the Federal Republic, God willing, and all elected representatives.”
