National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Monday declared his intention to contest for the office of the president in the 2023 election.
“I’ve informed the President of my ambition,” Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos said. “It’s been my life ambition. There’s nowhere in the world where a kingmaker cannot himself be king.”
Speaking with newsmen after he emerged from a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Tinubu said he plans to actualise his ambition under the platform of the ruling APC.
The former governor of Lagos, who has been in the news in recent times over calls for him to contest, however said he is still consulting and will inform Nigerians officially.
“I’ve informed the president of my intention but I have not informed Nigerians yet. I’m still consulting,” he said.
