Former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has declared his intention to contest the office of the president in the 2023 election.

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) made this known to newsmen after a closed meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari today.

“I’ve informed the President of my ambition,” Tinubu said. “It’s been my life-long ambition. There’s nowhere in the world where a kingmaker cannot himself be king.”

Tinubu said he plans to actualise his ambition under the platform of the ruling APC.

He also shrugged the question of a potential race for the APC ticket between him and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, whose support groups have since begun mobilizing for his candidacy.

Tinubu said that his ambition to be president of Nigeria had been life-long, noting that with what he did in Lagos in his time as governor, he has the capacity to lead Nigeria.

On Osinbajo’s potential ambition, the APC national leader maintained that he would not be drawn into any discussion on any individuals.

Asked why he would not remain a kingmaker rather than seeking to be the king, he said there is nothing that stops a kingmaker from becoming the king unless he has committed murder.

“I answer that with a categorical yes. 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. And I’ve noticed that a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people will I 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,” he said.
