In preparation for the 2023 general elections, the special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojudu, has made it known that he would prefer returning to farming, than supporting Bola Tinubu’s presidential ambition.
Ojudu made this known in an interview with Media Host, Chude Jideonwo, on Saturday.
Ojudu made it known, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo remained his candidate, indicating that if Buhari supports Tinubu, he would return to farming.
Ojudu stated, “Never. Take that from me, write it down today, I will go back to the farm. If I don’t believe in you I will not work for/with you.”
According to him, “We are still waiting for Osinbajo to come and tell us if he is running. I personally will want him to do so, but he has not come out, so we will wait, and there is still time.”
He added, “He can stand his anywhere in the world, comfortable with the young and the old, conformable with new technology and always coming out with solutions to problems. I mean, it doesn’t cost me anything to align with such a person.”
Ojudu questioned that, “What am I looking for in life? I’m looking for a better society, a society where everybody can realise themselves. I’m looking for a society where some people will not pile all of a country’s resources into their accounts.”
He noted that, “So, if I see somebody who has all of those attributes, I have the right to support that kind of person, so if Osinbajo declares tomorrow that he is running, I will have no apology I will support him, and I will work for him.”
