The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has disclosed President Muhammadu Buhari’s response after he informed him of his 2023 presidential ambition.
The APC leader disclosed that President Buhari didn’t object to his 2023 presidential ambition.
It will be recalled as earlier reported by Newspot that the former Lagos State Governor on Monday confirmed he has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his presidential ambition.
Tinubu on Monday met with the President behind closed doors at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja and the two leaders held discussions.
After their meeting, the APC National Leader had a chat with newsmen at the Villa where he was asked how Buhari responded to the information on his presidential ambition.
Tinubu said: “He’s a democrat, he didn’t ask me to stop. He didn’t ask me not to attempt and pursue my ambition. It’s a lifelong ambition.
“So, why will I expect him to say more than that? Why do you? You are running a democratic dispensation and you must adopt the principles and virtues of democracy.”
Tinubu however didn’t want to talk about the rumoured presidential ambition of other aspirants including Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
In other news, presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad has disclosed the effort of President Muhammadu Buhari will be more appreciated after the expiration of his tenure in 2023.
In a post via his Facebook page on Monday, Ahmad said President Buhari’s government has made reforms that will eventually pay off before the next president is elected.
The Personal Assistant on New Media to President Buhari claimed that his principal has set the country on the right track for the incoming president to succeed.
He wrote: “The motto that President Buhari has taken will not be seen in public now until after he leaves office. He has set this country on the right track that any incumbent leader should set. Some reform plans are inevitable, but eventually, they will pay off permanently.”
