Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s National Leader and a presidential candidate, has revealed why he met the All Progressives Congress Governors Forum on Monday.
Connectley Naija News recalls that Tinubu met with APC governors at the Kebbi State Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja, hours after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo stated his ambition to succeed President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in 2023.
Governors Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi, Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna, Bababjide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, Gboyega Oyetola of Osun, Mai Mala Binu of Yobe, Simon Lalong of Plateau, and Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa are among those in attendance.
The former Lagos State Governor told reporters after the meeting that he met with the governors to seek their support for his bid to become Nigeria’s president.
“My mission here is to seek collaboration, support, and encouragement of my party, the APC, for my ambition to become the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a replacement for President Muhammadu Buhari after his tenure,” he said.
When asked about Osinbajo’s declaration and 2023 ambition, Tinubu said, “I don’t have any son grown up enough to make such declaration.”
