2023: Tinubu At Losing End As Inside Source Reveals Buhari’s Alleged Preferred Candidate

A source has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s preferred candidate in the upcoming 2023 election is Ogbonnaya Onu.

An insider source informed the Leadership on Monday, May 23, that the former minister of science, technology and innovation, Ogbonnaya Onu, could just be President Muhammadu Buhari’s preferred presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The source stated further that the notion of APC eyeing a presidential ticket for former President Goodluck Jonathan may be wrong.

He said: “The press may have got the whole speculation about Jonathan wrong.

It’s because the scales are tipping in Onu’s favour that President Buhari has delayed the signing of the amendment to the Electoral Act, that may have permitted political appointees to be voting delegates at the primaries.”

Another source stated that Onu’s emergence as APC presidential candidate will favour the call for youths’ participation in Nigeria’s national politics and also rubbish the claim that Buhari is tribalistic.

According to the source: “But Buhari is looking for something more than age. He is desperate to redeem his legacy, especially in the wake of the raft of crises facing the country. You know the role of Buhari, his sacrifice, and that of the Nigerian Army during the civil war.

 “Rooting for Onu would be a masterstroke for the country’s unity at this time. It would repair Buhari’s damaged legacy, especially the accusations of nepotism against him. And increasingly, the thinking inside the Villa is that it is both fair and right to look to the southeast.
