Legal luminary, Afe Babalola says he is convinced that the February presidential election may not produce the will of the people but those who have much money to spend.
In a press briefing on Thursday, Babalola said the forthcoming poll would be won by the highest spender and not the best among the candidates vying for the top job.
The legal icon expressed worries that the outcome of the 2023 general elections may not favour ordinary Nigerians.
He said, “It is not who can make a difference that will win this election, I repeat, it is not the person who has all it takes – age, health, education, and patriotism, that will win the election; the winner of this election I can bet it, is going to be the person who has made money in this country.
“It is the person who has the money that will win”.
According to him, the endorsement of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo may not yield much results like what other candidates would do with their money.
