Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, says his principal has a favorite candidtae to succeed him in 2023, but will not mention the person.

Adesina made the revelation during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Thursday.

So far ministers of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio; Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; Science, Technology and Innovation, Ogbonnaya Onu, Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba  have joined the presidential race on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Adesina, who said he is not card-carrying member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), touched on ASUU strike, and how eager the president is to resolve the issue.

Adesina said, “In a previous interview when the president was asked whether he had a favorite candidate, he answered yes; but he will not mention him because mischief may happen to that person.

“That shows you that the president himself is interested in the process and he has a preferred candidate; but whether he will impose his candidate is what you can no determine at the moment.

However, Adesina said that going by the president’s recent directive that political appointees should resign before May 16, the president may decide to fill certain position if some ministers resign.
