Tinubu makes request to Buhari over 2023 presidency

Presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to hand over power to him in 2023.

Speaking during his visit to the palace of the Ooni of Ife and Owa Obokun of Ijesaland, in Osun State, Tinubu said he is fit and capable of running the affairs of Nigeria.
“We went around the country in 2013 to campaign for Buhari. Again in 2019, we stood with him and he won. He will soon finish his tenure. I am saying they should not just leave the post, they should hand it over to me. I cannot demand it alone. I must seek your assistance. If monarchs in the region unite and ask for it, if we ask for the presidency gently that they should hand it over to us, I am ready to take over.

“I am competent, capable and fit to pilot the affairs of the country to greatness,” the former Lagos State Governor said.

Tinubu, 69, who helped President Buhari to power in 2015 and 2019, is the national leader of the ruling APC, and is seen as one of the front-runners to succeed the present Nigerian leader in the country’s presidential elections slated for February 2023.
