A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, has declared support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
Lawal, stated this when fielding questions on Channels Television’s “The Verdict 2023”, on Friday night.
When asked why he stopped supporting the All Progressives Congress and joined the Labour Party as a member, and now supports the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Lawal stated he repented from “the darkness” of “the old system that used to govern us” when he saw the light.
He emphasized that the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party were the “same people,” with the “same agbada,” and that they both represented the darkness.
He said, “I’ve seen the light; you can repent when you see the light. I’ve seen the light, I saw the light and I repented, I’m sorry. I did that before. The light is Peter Obi. The darkness is the old system that used to govern us, which is represented by both the PDP and the APC. No change. Same people, same agbada, same red face cap. Same people. So Nigerians have seen the light, not only me.”
