Olusegun Osoba, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has said the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu has every right to contest for president in the 2023 general election.
Olusegun Osoba, who is also a former governor of Ogun State made this declaration on a Television Programme on Tuesday morning.
According to him, he said, “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as an individual has the right to put himself forward, we have not zeroed in on an individual. Zeroing in on any individual will destroy our efforts now but Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has a right to pursue his own agenda."
While speaking, he advised the South-West to unite and put its home in order to achieve success in the next presidential election.
He said, there is a gentleman’s agreement in the APC that the South will produce Nigeria’s president in 2023.
However, the APC chieftain noted that though “there is so much noise from the East”, nobody has contacted him or other chieftains of the party to show interest in running for president in 2023.
“As an elder in the party, nobody from the South-East has contacted or consulted me to lobby, to even say they are interested,” Osoba stated.
