Mr. Ahmad Lawal, the Senate President says his 2023 presidential ambition was conceived to enable him to change the lives of Nigerians.
“I am running for the presidency of the country to help me change the lives of the people for good,” according to the senate president.
Mr Lawal said this on Friday when he paid a courtesy call on Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River in Calabar as part of his political tour to meet with delegates of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
He said that the welfare and security of Nigerians was top most priority on his agenda if given the presidential ticket of the ruling APC.
