The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan on Wednesday called on delegates to consider aspirants’ history and public records before voting at the upcoming presidential primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ahmad Lawan, who is also a presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, stated this through a statement issued on Wednesday.
While soliciting votes from the delegates so that he could emerge as the APC presidential flag bearer for the 2023 presidential election, Lawan said, “To all delegates across Nigeria, I beseech you to put pecuniary and monetary incentives aside and seriously consider what is ‘in the greater good.’ As you make your decision in picking the flag bearer of our party, I urge you to seek a leader and not a politician.
“I ask you to choose a person that will lead and not rule Nigerians; one that will be understanding, tolerant, fair, honest, and progressive. A leader that comes with absolutely ‘No-Baggage.’
“A vital component of any logical, efficient and authentic evaluation of a person involves assessing past behaviour. The key here is that one’s best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour. If one has always done something a certain way, they are likely to do that same thing in the same manner in the future.
“The same goes for how one navigates or pillages in leadership. Thus, as you, the delegates, are determining the APC party presidential flag bearer, it is important to look at past behaviour to elicit what behaviours, avarice and rapacity candidates have exhibited in the past. You need to access all candidates along with this parameter.”
