Tinubu hasn't taken a stand concerning 2023 presidential race
The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that he has not made any decision to run for president in the 2023 presidential election.
In the opinions of many Nigerians, the dissolution of the party’s NWC dealt a blow to the perceived presidential ambition of the party leader because of his closeness to Oshiomhole, the former chairman of the party.
But the former Governor of Lagos State in the statement dismissed the rumoured presidential ambition, saying at this moment, he’s more worried for Nigeria about the spread of coronavirus and its economic fallout.
Below is the full statement of Tinubu.
"BECOMING THE PARTY WE WERE INTENDED TO BE
I wish to begin my remarks by commending members of the National Working Committee.
Under their collective stewardship, the party earned great and important victories, not least the vital second mandate handed to President Buhari.
President Buhari’s victory, and the overall electoral success of APC speak highly of them.
Our task as a party is to build upon the progress thus made so that both nation and party may advance to their better future."
