Husseini Lawal, who planned to commence an SOS march from Abuja City Gate to Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos, to persuade Sen. Bola Tinubu to contest the 2023 presidency had failed to show up.
According to an invitation to the News Agency of Nigeria to cover the take-off, Lawal who hails from Durun Town in Kabo Local Government Area of Kano State, was supposed to commence the march at 10.00 am on Wednesday.
The invitation was signed by Mr Chris Richard, and efforts to reach Richard were abortive as the line on the invitation card was switched off.
Mr Tinubu, one of the national leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and a two-term former Governor of Lagos State, is a leading 2023 presidential aspirant.
Mr Tinubu had on Jan. 10, formally informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election and had also been visiting traditional rulers in the country to intimate them of his intention.
