2023 Presidency: I won’t reject calls to contest – Tinubu
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, says he will not reject calls to contest for the Presidency in 2023.
The former Lagos State governor stated this after a closed-door meeting with leaders of the Northern Alliance Committee in Abuja.
While refusing to officially declare his ambition, the 69-year-old politician said political consultations were ongoing.
“I am not going to turn them down but I will still effectively and widely consult, particularly brainstorm with my friends and find a date to come out openly and tell Nigerians.
“But the President is still in office. I don’t want to distract him from all the challenges he might face today. So, don’t muddle the political waters. Consult, make our program known to the people later. And the intention is clear. So you can keep guessing,” Tinubu added.
Endorsing Tinubu for 2023, the leader of the Northern Alliance Committee, Lawal Munir, said the meeting resolved to work for the actualisation of the ambition of the APC National Leader to the next level.
Munir, who said they had a fruitful meeting with Tinubu, disclosed that the committee resolved to support him come 2023 due to his superlative qualities.
