Just In: I Have Informed Buhari Of My Intention To Run For President, Says Tinubu
President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr Bola Tinubu exchange pleasantries during the APC leader’s visit to the Aso Villa in Abuja on January 10, 2022.
The National Leader of the All progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, says he has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to contest the presidential election in 2023.
He, however, declared that he has yet to inform Nigerians of his intention to succeed the President.
Tinubu stated this on Monday while briefing State House correspondents after he met with President Buhari at the Aso Villa in Abuja.
According to him, the President is a democrat and therefore, has not asked him to stop the pursuit of his ambition which for him is life-long.
The APC leader and former governor of Lagos State stressed that he has the confidence, vision, and capacity to build on the foundation laid by President Buhari to turn around the fortunes of the country.
