I have no son old enough to declare for presidency —Tinubu


By Ismail Auwal

In an apparent response to Vice President Yomi Osinbanjo, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said he doesn’t have a son old enough to contest the 2023 presidential election.

The former Lagos, while reacting to Osinbajo’s declaration, said he met the governors to collaborate on his 2023 ambition.

“I don’t have any son grown up enough to make such declaration,” Tinubu replied when asked about Osinbajo’s 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 a replacement for President Muhammadu Buhari after his tenure,” he added.

The Kebbi State Governor and the Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), Atiku Bagudu, also refuted claims that Osinbajo’s declaration pits him with his political godson.

According to him, the development shows the quality of persons in the ruling APC.

“The fact that we have people in our party that express desire to lead the party into the highest office in electoral contest shows how much this our party has resonated with Nigerians and our party members,” the governor said.

The meeting took place just hours after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo declared his intention to run for president in the 2023 elections
