Doyin Okupe, an erstwhile aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on Friday claimed that former Head of State, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, IBB, is considering him for the presidency in 2023.
Okupe disclosed this while appearing on Arise News TV.
The former presidential aide noted that the criteria laid out by IBB fit his profile perfectly, adding that the former ruler must have had him in mind while reeling out the qualities for the next Nigerian leader.
“I believe when IBB was making that speech, he was talking about me. I haven’t spoken with him in a long time, I agree with all his points.
“I am part of the three individuals IBB was talking about. I am the most prepared person for the job.
“There is nowhere in the country I don’t have contact,” Okupe said.
IBB had listed some qualities the next President of Nigeria should possess.
The former ruler said the highlighted qualities would help the next President steer Nigeria to greatness.
He said Nigeria’s next President should be a good leader, well travelled, a good politician, among others.
