2023 Election: Tinubu Decries Alarming Number of Aspirants

The All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, has reacted to the growing number of Aspirants running for the presidential seat. 

The former Governor of Lagos State said, though the rising numbers make it more challenging, he believes it is good for Nigeria’s democracy. 

Tinubu made his assertion after visiting President Mohammadu Buhari at the State House for a closed-door meeting. 

“The more the merrier. The more they come, the more challenging it becomes for you to think deeply, focus on issues and be ready to serve Nigeria,” Tinubu stated. 

“It’s all about service, it’s nothing else. Think wisely, get committed to your thinking to serve the nation and bring progress and prosperity to the lives of Nigerians.

“It’s good for the country for so many of us to aspire to want to lead, we’re not abandoning our nation. But there’s only one chair and one possibility. We will do that,” he concluded.

Bola Tinubu is vying for the APC presidential ticket with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba; Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi; Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello; Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi; former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha; former Abia State Governor, Orji Kalu; and former Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun.
