God’ll determine if I’ll contest for presidency says Buhari’s Senate President Lawan – The Informant247

The Nigerian Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has clarified that God would determine his next line of political action.

Lawal made this clarification against public assumption that he has joined the league of presidential aspirants in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The number three citizen of the country had an encounter with the State House newsmen after observing the Eid prayers at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

In reaction to the ongoing speculation that he’s joined the presidential race under the ruling party, APC, he said: “I thought you were going to ask me about what we want to do in 2022. We passed the budget for 2022, a budget for consolidation of what we have been able to achieve in 2020, when we had an implementation of 100%.

“2022 has just finished, another 100% implementation of budget and we’re looking forward to ensure that the 2022 budget is also implemented by 100%.

“If we stabilize our economy, we stabilize our country, then people can contest, but for now everything is speculative and I believe that God, in His infinite mercy, will show us the way.”

The Yobe born politician, admonished the people to do away with partisanship and work for the betterment of the country.

The SP explained that the country would have developed faster than this, if the country had not witnessed two recessions and the COVID-19 pandemic.

In His words: “Today, we are happy to say that we’re still making progress, but would have done far better if we hadn’t had the COVID interruption.

“So, I believe that as a nation, we are moving in the right direction and President Muhammadu Buhari is giving us the leadership that we need and all that we need to do is to continue to support our leaders, continue to support our government and it’s in the best interest of everyone.

“Let no politics, let no partisanship, let no sentiments derail any of our programmes and projects because you need to have a Nigeria first if you are running to take over government at whatever level. You need to have a country, you need to have a stable country, you need to have a peaceful country in first place and if you do that, you can contest, for example. But as individuals, we have a date with a history.

“How much do we give to our nation? How much do we sacrifice for the sake of others in our communities and in our country? That determines a lot how far we can go because if we decide to be selfish, then I’m sorry, we may not make that kind of progress that we believe can take us to the Eldorado.”
