Fourteen state governors have already thrown their weights behind former Lagos State Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential ambition, according to Abdulmumin Jibrin.
Jibrin, a former Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, had earlier said Tinubu would surely succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, adding that the All Progressives Congress, APC’s national leader is the best candidate from the party.
You would recall that Tinubu had a few weeks ago declared his intention to run in the presidential election in 2023.
“14 Governors in and 4 in talks. 26 state Chairmen in. We will not attack or stop anybody from contesting. We are exercising our right of choice by promoting Alhaji Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Do same for yours pls. We will remain gracious and our doors open now and after the victories,” Jibrin tweeted.
Since Tinubu declared his intention to run for the coveted office, Senators Orji Uzor Kalu and Rochas Okorocha have both declared their interest in the APC sole ticket as well. Both men are also former governors of Abia and Imo states respectively.
