My presidential ambition is a lifelong dream says Tinubu

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has officially declared his intention to contest for the presidential seat in the 2023 elections.

He spoke at the State House in Abuja after informing President Muhammadu Buhari of his plans.

While speaking to reporters, the former Lagos State governor said that his bid has been a lifelong ambition and promised to give further details later.

Tinubu said: “I’ve informed the President of my intention, but I’ve not informed Nigerians yet.

“I’m still consulting and I have no problem consulting.

“I’ve not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people I will consult.

“You will soon hear all you want to hear; it’s a categorical declaration.

“You’ve gotten that truth from me that I’ve informed Mr. President of my ambition and you don’t expect more answers than that.”

Commenting on Buhari’s reaction to his bid, 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?

“You are running a democratic dispensation and you must adopt the principles and virtues of democracy.”
