A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, has described as “disastrous error” the choice by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 election, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, of Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

According to him, although Tinubu remained “a very good man”, great listener, humble and “very generous in both cash and kind, especially where it could advance his political interests”, he had realised that it had been in the nature of power that “sycophants and lapdogs have the most influence on leaders with such character traits.”

Lawal bared his mind in a lengthy essay obtained by newmen in Abuja on last night night.

It would be recalled that Tinubu had on Sunday revealed Shettima as his running mate in Daura.
