The controversial second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, over the weekend revealed that he will throw his weight behind Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) if he decides to contest the presidency in 2023.
The Russsian trained medical doctor stated this in an interview with Daily Independent, Junaid stressed that he will rather have Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari than have any Igbo man rule Nigeria as president.
He said,” If Tinubu wants to be the President of Nigeria and he asks for my advice, I will say go ahead because I will rather have Tinubu as President than have some of the people in the South-East who are ambitious and want to blackmail Nigeria into ceding power to them”.
“I know that no matter what happens, even if Tinubu were to be drunk, he will be a better President than Goodluck Jonathan”.
“I also know that he is better than Governor Kayode Fayemi who is also nursing presidential ambition” he said.
