No intimidation, blackmail will stop my quest for presidency in 2023- Bola Tinubu
Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC) and a presidential aspirant has said no amount of blackmail or intimidation can stop his quest for the presidency in 2023.
Mr Tinubu said this when he visited the Olubadan of Ibadan designate, Lekan Balogun, in his Alarere residence, Ibadan to seek his blessings for his presidential ambition.
Newsmen reported how after months of speculation, Mr Tinubu formally declared his intention to run for the country’s presidency in 2023.
He disclosed this to journalists after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
In his interview with State House reporters, Mr Tinubu said it had been his age-long ambition to lead the country one day. Tinubu said;
“I have informed the President of my ambition but I have not informed Nigerians yet, I am still consulting. And I have no problem consulting. And I’ve not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people I will consult.
“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, and you don’t expect more answers than that.”
Mr Tinubu has since met with many political blocs across the nation and beyond in his quest to become president in 2023.
Newsmen reported how the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, an estranged loyalist of the former governor recently launched a scathing attack on him.
Mr Tinubu, during his visit to the Olubadan expressed strong determination in his quest to become the nation’s president in 2023.
