The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, says he has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to contest the presidential election in 2023.
Tinubu stated this on Monday while briefing State House correspondents after he met with Buhari at the Aso Villa in Abuja.
The APC national leader said, “I have informed the President of my intention but I’ve not informed Nigerians yet. I am still consulting and I have no problem consulting and I have not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people will I consult. You will soon hear all you want to hear; it is a categorical declaration. You’ve gotten that truth from me that I have informed Mr President of my ambition.”
The former governor of Lagos State stressed that he has the confidence, vision, and capacity to build on the foundation laid by Buhari to turn around the fortunes of the country.
