The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday disclosed that he will not reject calls to take over power from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure in 2023.
Tinubu stated this after a closed-door meeting with leaders of the Northern Alliance Committee in Abuja.
The former Governor of Lagos State who failed to officially declare his ambition, said political consultations are ongoing.
He said, “I am not going to turn them down, voices that clamour for his candidacy.
“But I will still effective 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.”
The leader of the Northern Alliance Committee, Lawal Munir, while endorsing Tinubu said the meeting resolved to work for the ambition of the APC leader in 2023.
He further stated that they had a fruitful meeting with Tinubu, adding that the committee has decided to support the former Governor of Lagos State due to his superlative qualities.
Munir said, “The meeting ended very well. We are working for him. We are working for him because we know he will win the election when the time comes.”
