A National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says he has not taken any decision to run for president in 2023 contrary to speculations.
He said rather, he was more concerned about the health and economic challenges facing the country at the moment.
The Former Lagos State Governor Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu said this in a statement while reacting to comments that the dissolution of the party’s National Working Committee, had ended his purported 2023 ambitions.
He described the comments as distasteful, saying “already, you have assigned colourful epitaphs to the 2023 death of an alleged political ambition that is not yet even born.
According to him, rather than politicking, he has been spending his time trying to think of helpful ideas and policies to help in solving the myriad of problems in the country.
“During this period, I have not busied myself with politicking regarding 2023. I find that a bit distasteful and somewhat uncaring particularly when so many of our people have been unbalanced by the twin public health and economic crises we face. I have devoted these last few months to thinking of 8 policies that may help the nation in the here and now. What I may or may not do 3 years hence seems too remote given present exigencies,” the statement read in part.
