A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Olusegun Osoba, has said ex-governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, has the right to contest for president in 2023.
Osoba, who is also a former governor of Ogun State, spoke on a television programme on Tuesday.
“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,” he said.
The APC chieftain, however, 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.
He said the South-West must unite and put its home in order to achieve success in the next presidential election.
According to him, there is a gentleman’s agreement in the APC that the South will produce Nigeria’s president in 2023.
