A lawmaker representing Tarauni Federal Constituency in Kano state, Hafizu Kawu, has described Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as the natural successor of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2023 presidential election.

Kawu, a former aide to the Vice President, said that he has what it takes to succeed President Buhari, owing to his “experience and versatility in managing an entity”.

In a press conference held in Kano, the lawmaker said Mr Osinbajo, even though he had not yet declared his intention to contest for the presidency, is the most suited to succeed President Buhari.

He said the Vice President has the capacity and experience to lead Nigeria over every other aspirant in the All Progressives Congress, APC.

“The Vice President can improve the economy of the country since he is the one who designed all social investment programmes that have positively impacted millions of Nigerians,

“I am sure the VP would continue from where Mr President stopped because he has the mindset of developing Nigeria. He is the natural successor of the President. His belief in the country is profound because it is in his heart. He is a leader by example.

“He is a loyal VP, and his performance is unprecedented. Even when he acted as the President,  he performed very well on several occasions. He has the experience to become the nation’s leader come 2023,” Kawu noted.

When asked about the presidential ambition of the National Leader of APC, Bola Tinubu, Mr Kawu said, “Tinubu has not declared his presidential ambition. Even if he declares, the party knows how to sort it out.”

He said as the presidential race is approaching, Nigerians need to choose a competent leader who will oversee the nation’s affairs in the next dispensation.
