A leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, says he has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to contest the presidency in the 2023 general election.
He made this known while speaking to state house correspondents on Monday after a meeting with Buhari at the presidential villa.
Tinubu, also a former governor of Lagos, has always been rumoured to have interest in succeeding Buhari whom he helped wrestle power from the Peoples Democratic Party in 2015.
The APC chieftain, however, said he is still consulting on the matter.
He said, “I’ve informed the president of my intention but I have not informed Nigerians yet. I’m still consulting. And I have no problem consulting. I’ve not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people I will consult,” he said.
“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.”
