Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is currently drumming support for the President of the African Development Bank and former minister, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, to enter the 2023 presidential race.
Obasanjo by his support for Adesina, subtly sidelined a former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, whose ambition is more prominent in the South-West.
Tinubu, despite the barrage of corruption cases on his neck, is working hard through proxies and political godsons to ensure that he gets nationwide support.
It has since started manifesting in the crude exploitation of the poverty situation of Nigerians by the sharing of Tinubu-branded rice bags first in Kano and Borno states.
“Baba’s backing for the AfDB President is predicated on his sound educational, economic, and leadership pedigree that he believes can guaranty him easy victory over other recycled politicians with some baggage,” the top politician said.
