Olusegun Bamgbose, National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, has claimed that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, is plotting to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023.
Malami, according to Bamgbose, has taken over the leadership of the cabals and just like late Abba Kyari, he (AGF)is also eyeing the Presidential Villa.
To achieve this, Bamgbose, a senior lawyer and 2023 presidential hopeful, said that Malami, as a lawyer by profession, is leaving no stone unturned and has made the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu his first target.
“He [Malami] is fully aware of Tinubu’s EFCC ordeal. It was an arrangement. Tinubu could be his biggest obstacle and so he must go down as soon as possible,” Bamgbose told DAILY POST.
“Politics is a game played by the Masters, won by the smartest. The cabals are at work. The late Chief of Staff Abba Kyari was undoubtedly the leader of the cabals when he was alive.
“It was rumored back then that he was hatching a plan to take over from Buhari, but death swept him away from the political horizon.
“Malami, the AGF, has taken over the leadership of the Cabals. Interestingly, just like late Abba Kyari, he is also eyeing the Presidential Villa.
“He has started putting things in order to take over from Buhari come 2023. It’s most likely a sitting Governor from the South West may end up becoming his running mate. In essence, the cabals will want to ensure that power will be retained by the North come 2023.
“Malami as a Lawyer by profession is leaving no stones unturned to actualize his Presidential ambition. Tinubu is his first target.
“The game is really becoming interesting. Tinubu is equally restrategising to beat down Malami. This might not be an easy task anyway.
“The North is not comfortable with Tinubu’s Presidential ambition. They very well understand that his silence on national issues is not an indication that he will be loyal to them.
“Tinubu should however forget any form of sympathy from the South West Virginia it’s nemesis at work. However let it be known to Malami that no amount of strategies and scheming will make him to succeed Buhari.
“The Presidency must go to South come 2023. it’s never negotiable. It will be inequitable and unacceptable for the North to retain power in 2023,” he added.
