Tinubu presidential ambition, relief to teeming followers — Lagos lawmaker

A Lagos lawmaker, Setonji David, said that Bola Tinubu‘s statement and notification of his presidential ambition to President Muhammadu Buhari had brought relief to his many supporters.

Mr. David told the Nigerian News Agency that Mr. Tinubu’s supporters had received with absolute joy his declaration of interest to participate in the 2023 presidential elections.

The National Leader of the Congress of All Progressives, APC, told reporters on Monday that he was at the Presidential Village to formally inform President Buhari of his presidential ambition in 2023.

Tinubu, who spoke after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the State House, Abuja, said that although he had made his intention known to the president, he would continue to consult with Nigerians.

The APC stalwart said he would like to take over from Buhari in 2023 to continue the good works of the ruling APC.

“It is a welcome development and a relief. A relief because our people have been appealing and begging our leader to come and declare himself to contest the presidential elections in this country.

“Asiwaju is the man who has the means and the ability to renew the nation’s economy and bring everyone together.

“He’s a good manager of people and resources,” said David, chairman of the Lagos Assembly’s Committee on Information, Publicity, Security and Strategy.

David, a two-term lawmaker representing Badagry Constituency II, said Tinubu’s declaration of interest to participate in the 2023 presidential elections had been well received by his in-laws.
