The Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has said the party’s presidential flagbearer, Bola Tinubu, is the candidate to beat in the 2023 elections.
Keyamo said this in a statement on Monday while refuting social media reports that the APC presidential flagbearer has withdrawn from the race on health grounds.
The Minister of State for Labour and Employment said Tinubu is strong, healthy and fit enough for the forthcoming campaign and presidential election.
Keyamo described the claims as nothing but a figment of the warped imaginations of the sponsor of the false and misleading posts.
He accused the supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, of being behind the false and misleading posts on social media.
The minister asserted that the opposition parties will hear loud and clear from Tinubu when the campaign starts.

Speaking to journalists in Kaduna, Gumi stated that the various challenges facing the country need an experienced politician to solve them and not a novice.
Gumi maintained that the country does not need a sectional leader or religious bigot, but a politician who can unite the country. He advised Nigerians should do away with ethnoreligious politics ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The cleric, however, asserted that there was nothing wrong with politicians contesting elections several times and seeking victory.
