His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has not even declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election let alone open a campaign office.
This was asserted in a press release by Tunde Rahman, the media aide to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Rahman stated that “he has repeatedly said 2023 is still some years away and that he is at present focused on helping President Buhari deliver on his mandate as he is doing and coasting home to victory”.
“That is his position. But you know also that many of his friends, associates and supporters who feel he is eminently qualified for the Presidency and has done excellently well to advance our democracy and want to see him offer himself for the top job are doing everything on their own to see him contest”.
“I don’t know the office you are talking about but it may just be one of those things these people are doing to get Asiwaju Tinubu to do as they wish. And I think they have a right to advance the course they believe in. Asiwaju’s appeal, however, is that they allow the present government to concentrate on the good job it is doing and allow the matter of 2023 to take care of itself in the fullness of time” he concluded.
Meanwhile, several groups across the nation have expressed their support for the Leader of the ruling APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to contest for the president in 2023.
The pioneer of such group is the Tinubu 2023 Not Negotiable (TNN2023) coordinated by Chief Mutiu Kunle Okunola, with chapters in all the Southwest states, Northwest states and North central states.
