APC speaks on Tinubu and El Rufai’s 2023 presidential ambition

APC governors on the aegis of Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), have spoken concerning the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai.

Both men are said to be working towards replacing President Buhari come 2023, with some support groups already campaigning for them.

However, both men are yet to publicly declare their ambition to become president.

Speaking after a meeting between the governors, Lagos State governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu stated that it is the right of both men to seek power.

Sanwo-Olu, represented by his Deputy, Kadri Hamzat, said: “It is everybody’s dream and it is also okay to dream. The reality is that INEC will have to come with timetable and schedule of activities first.

“What these people are doing does not mean it will work. I have not seen any campaign office in Lagos and I do not know whether there is also in Kaduna. I have never seen it but that doesn’t mean it does not exist. It is the essence of democracy.

“We all signed up for constitutional democracy and I have the right to bring anybody together and say I want to be president. So, whatever I do as long as its does not negatively affect any human being, its okay.

“We all say we want democracy and if some people gather and say they want to be President in 2040, I will say goodluck but we must first of all pray that God preserves their alive.

“For me, I will not worry about it, so long as the gathering is not negative to the development of Nigeria. It is part of democracy, I won’t worry about it,” he quipped.
