2023: APC Governors Speak On Tinubu, El-Rufai Presidential Ticket

Political Permutations Continue Ahead Of 2023

Governors elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have revealed their stand on the possibility of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu or Mallam Nasir El-Rufai taking over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

JNJGLOBALGIST.COM reports Tinubu is the National Leader of the APC and El-Rufai is the incumbent governor of Kaduna State.

The APC governors who met under the auspices of Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) have said though both individuals are yet to officially declare their intention to vie for the office of president in 2023, they are free under the constitution to aspire for the position.

It will be recalled that some support groups and political pressure groups have openly called for both Tinubu and El-Rufai to contest the 2023 presidency in Nigeria.

Answering questions after the meeting between the governors and State Commissioners for Information of all the APC states on Thursday, Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu , represented by his deputy, Kadri Hamzat, said: “It is everybody’s dream and it is also okay to dream. The reality is that INEC will have to come with timetable and schedule of activities first.

“What these people are doing does not mean it will work. I have not seen any campaign office in Lagos and I do not know whether there is also in Kaduna. I have never seen it but that doesn’t mean it does not exist. It is the essence of democracy.

“We all signed up for constitutional democracy and I have the right to bring anybody together and say I want to be president. So, whatever I do as long as its does not negatively affect any human being, its okay.

“We all say we want democracy and if some people gather and say they want to be President in 2040, I will say goodluck but we must first of all pray that God preserves their alive.

“For me, I will not worry about it, so long as the gathering is not negative to the development of Nigeria. It is part of democracy, I won’t worry about it, ” he submitted.
