All Progressives Congress (APC), national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Monday, January 10, claimed he has the backing of President Muhammadu Buhari for his presidential ambition in 2023.

Tinubu told the media after a closed-door meeting with Buhari that the president did not reject his intention.

“The president is a democrat. He did not ask me to stop, he didn’t ask me not to attempt and pursue my ambition. It’s a lifelong ambition.

“You’re running a democratic dispensation and you must adopt the principles and values and virtues of democracy,” Tinubu said.

Tinubu during his visit to Aso Villa on Monday, had informed the president of his intention to run for presidency in 2023.

Tinubu, however, refused to comment on other individuals with similar ambition.

According to him, “I don’t want to discuss individuals now, I must discuss myself. I have the confidence, vision and capacity to build on the foundation of the president and turn Nigeria better. I have done that with commitment and yielding zeal in Lagos State.”

He said further, “The confusion and drift of the past in PDP is being corrected as we are today. Going back to the data of how many barrels of oil we were producing when we took over and what we have today you can see excellent infrastructure.

“Let’s think back and be intellectually inquisitive as to the past and the present; as well as what the future holds for Nigeria.”
