Babachir Lawal, a former secretary to the government of the federation, has referred to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the “old system” and “darkness” respectively.
Babachir declared that he had seen the light and had fled the shadows.
This was said by the former SGF on Friday while appearing on the 2023 Verdict program on Channels Television.
Babachir explained that he dumped APC to support Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, after realizing he (Obi) was the ‘light’.
“I have seen the light, and you can repent when you see the light. I saw the light and repented. The light is Peter Obi; the darkness is the old system that used to govern us, which is represented by both the PDP and APC. Same people, same agbada, same red caps, so Nigerians have seen the light, not only me,” Lawal said.
He added that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, which he was part of, didn’t function well and failed to live up to expectations.
