Tinubu Informs Buhari, Osinbajo On 2023 Ambition

Former Lagos state governor and National Leader of the All Progressive Congress(APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu said  has officially informed President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinabjo of his ambition to contest the Presidential election in 2023.

Tinubu stated this during an interactive session with State House Correspondents on Monday.

“I have informed the president of my intention but I have not informed Nigerians yet. I’m still consulting.

“And I have no problem consulting. I have not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people I will consult,” Tinubu told State House correspondents after a meeting with Buhari at the Aso Presidential Villa on Monday, January 10, 2022.

Tinubu also said becoming Nigeria’s President has been a lifelong ambition for him.

“You will soon hear. All you want to hear is the categorical declaration. You’ve gotten that truth from me that I have informed Mr. President of my ambition,” the 69-year-old reiterated.

He added that as a democrat, Buhari did not discourage him from contesting the 2023 Presidency from the platform of the governing APC.

Tinubu was the governor of Lago state from 1999- 2007.
