An elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, has cautioned political actors in the country against using 2023 politics as a tool to destabilise Nigeria.
Yakasai, in a statement yesterday, said the recent invitation and grilling of a former governor of Kwara State and erstwhile Senate President, Bukola Saraki, by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has a political undertone.
"The politics of 2023 should not be used as a tool to undermine the stability of our country, Nigeria.
"The general thinking is that this move against Bukola might have something to do with his perceived presidential ambition; to prevent or interfere with that ambition. It will be sad if this is the motivation.
"I believe he is qualified to become president of Nigeria and he should be free to canvass his political ambition just like any other qualified Nigerian. No attempt should be made to put obstacle on his way," Yakasai said.
