Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC’s national leader, announced on Monday that he had notified President Muhammadu Buhari of his plans to run for president in 2023.
Asiwaju Tinubu said it had been a lifelong dream and that he had the confidence, the vision, and the capacity to expand on President Muhammadu Buhari’s plan.
After a private meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the APC national leader revealed this to State House media.
On his way to the State House, he said that he was there to discuss general Nigerian matters, including the APC and security concerns, with the President.
Asked whether he has informed President Buhari of his ambition to contest for the President in 2023, he said, “I have informed the President of my ambition but I have not informed Nigerians yet, I am still consulting.”
Asked about President Buhari’s response, Asiwaju Tinubu said that the President, as a democrat, did not ask him to stop running for president.
