Former Lagos State Governor, and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over the weekend said he cannot rule out the possibility of running for the office of the president.
The APC leader revealed his presidential ambition on Friday while fielding questions from journalists. He noted that running for any office in Nigeria was an opportunity to serve his country.
In his words, he said,
You see there is nothing wrong with such ambition.
It depends on the timing and the environment and what political leadership dictates.
I will not brush aside such an aspiration.
It has been historical even that Buhari tried first, second, third, and fourth before he got it. Resilience, determination, and clarity of purpose.
Maybe as a senator, maybe as a president, you cannot rule it out. How can I rule such a thing out, the opportunity to serve my country? But you only do that when there is a vacancy.
On whether there is a crack within the APC, Tinubu added that there was none in anyway amongst APC leaders.
Everything has always been alright in APC camp. I credit the Nigerian creativity in journalism, they create stories, and if you have to respond to every one of it, you will be in trouble, he said.
