The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has reacted to the presidential declaration of his protégé, Yemi Osinbajo.
On Monday morning, April 11, the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, formally declared his intention to run for President in the forthcoming 2023 election on his official Twitter page.
“I am today, with utmost humility formally declaring my intention to run for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the platform of APC.” He wrote in part.
Speaking on the declaration of his political godson, Osinbajo, for the presidency, Tinubu, while speaking with journalists after his meeting with APC governors on Monday, said “I don’t have any son grown up enough to make such declaration”.
“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 replacement for President Muhammadu Buhari after his tenure”, he added.
