2023 PRESIDENCY: I Will Campaign For Tinubu If He Decides To Run For The Office President – Buhari.

Buhari & Tinubu.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said he would support and campaign for the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu if he decides to run for the office of President.

 

It is in the public dormain that the former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu may run for Presidency in 2023 but he has not announced any such intentions, and a few months ago he mocked those pundits who purported to know his political intentions.           

He was quoted to have said at a point: “Already you have assigned colourful epitaphs to the 2023 death of an alleged political ambition that is not yet even born” but his loyalists have continued to throw their weight behind him for the 2023 presidency. 

In a recent interview, one of the loyalists of the APC National Leader and Oyo North Senator, Abdulfatai Buhari in a recent interview stated that he will support Tinubu for the country’s top seat once he declares his intentions to run, but on the part of the President, he is ready to support him. 

To further buttress this, President Buhari was said to have dissociated himself from insinuations that Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi was working against Tinubu’s interest.

The President said: “No. I am for Tinubu. I am not for Fayemi and I will not be in a meeting where somebody would be working against Tinubu. I am supporting Tinubu”. 

Responding to a question on whether Tinubu was running for president, Buhari said, “If he wants to be President, I will support him. I will campaign for him.”
