A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has said the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and members of his campaign team would lick their wounds if he fails to secure the party’s presidential ticket.
Speaking with newsmen after submitting the expression of interest and nomination forms for Tinubu, Lawal said the APC national leader was 100 prepared for the primaries.
He said as long as the process is fair, Tinubu team will support whoever emerges as the presidential candidate of the party for the 2023 poll.
“There are no challenges, we are politicians. We have been in this game for many years. Whatever challenges there are, we will convert them to opportunities. We are 100 percent prepared.
“He (Tinubu) is a democrat, every politician should not be afraid of election because the probability are two; either you win or loss. So, if we loss at the convention, we will go back home, we will lick our wounds and prepare to support the winner if he wins in a free and fair manner,” he stated.
He added that there was no threat to Tinubu, adding that “We will carry the majority of the delegates at the convention. So, the more the merrier, they (aspirants who resigned) are all welcome
“We feel elated that today we have come to submit the winning form and we have complied with one of the major requirements of the party for contesting for presidency on the platform of APC. We have done all that is required. We have submitted all the documents that are required.
“As you can see we have received our acknowledgement copy and we are confident that victory will be ours on 30th of May during the convention,” he explained.
