Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressive Party (APC) has said the APC will retain the presidency in 2023.
He also said no president would willingly want his citizens exposed to banditry and danger.
According to him, “I don’t want to predict that one (chances of the APC retaining power at the centre, after President Buhari) right now, I don’t want to do that subject now. The chances are as bright as a midnight star. We will continue to work for a better Nigeria and that is what you need”.
“We cannot interject politics and assumption into everything, we have a nation to build, we have a baton to pass. You can depend on Buhari that he will not spend one hour beyond his tenure. He will do that; he will comply with the Constitution. So, how it happens? Read the Nigerian Constitution and find out from the INEC website.”
This statement was made by Tinubu after meeting with the president on Monday. He also stated that he still has a good relationship with Buhari. Tinubu was accompanied to Abuja by Chief Bisi Akande, APC’s pioneer interim National Chairman.
When Tinubu was questioned on reason for his visit, he said “It is to generally review the perceptions going on outside there and equally focus on the security across the country more. He will have more information than we have, but we are his ears close to the ground and we have to exchange views so that a better Nigeria is grounded. That’s all.”
“The best way is what we are doing; coming together to reduce banditry, to move for unity and be able to bring a better Nigeria to the people. The welfare of our people is extremely important”.
