2023: I am Still Consulting, Says Tinubu

All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Tuesday said he was still consulting over the 2023 presidential election.

He said he will not turn down individuals and groups who are urging him to contest for president.

The eminent politician spoke in Abuja after a closed-door meeting with members of the Northern Alliance Committee (NAC).

He maintained that consultations with political stakeholders was still ongoing.

Asked if he will respond to calls by some Nigerians that he succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, Tinubu said: “I’m not going to turn them down. But, I will still effectively and widely consult, particularly brainstorm with my friends and find a date to come out openly and tell Nigerians.”

The former Lagos State governor however, said all hands must be on deck to assist President Buhari and ensure that he is not distracted from tackling the challenges facing the country.

He stressed: “The president is still in office. I don’t want to distract him from all the challenges that he might face today. So, we will consult and make our programme known to the people later and the intention is clear. So, you keep guessing.”

Endorsing Tinubu for 2023, the NAC leader, Ambassador Lawal Ahmed Munir, said the meeting resolved to work for the actualisation of his ambition.

Munir resolved to support him in 2023 because of his sterling 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.”
