Founder and pioneer national chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Senator Rufai Hanga has revealed that there has been an agreement for President Buhari to hand over power to former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu in 2023.
Speaking to Daily Trust, he said;
“This is an open secret. There was an implied agreement. Even in law, there is implied and expressed act. If something is expressed, there are no two ways about it. There was an implied agreement that he would take over. That is why he didn’t back out after the first tenure. If Tinubu knew that he would not benefit, he would have backed out during Buhari’s first tenure. But he knows there was an agreement.”
He also added that he doubts Tinubu will be given APC’s presidential ticket in 2023, as there might be a fight with power blocs among governors and some forces in the Presidency.
