The general view is that Bola Tinubu, former Lagos state governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, will run for Presidency in 2023 but he has not announced any such intentions.
In fact, a few months ago he mocked those pundits who purported to know his political intentions.
Responding to the pundits, Tinubu said:
“Already you have assigned colourful epitaphs to the 2023 death of an alleged political ambition that is not yet even born.”
However, his loyalists have continued to throw their weight behind him for the 2023 presidency.
One of them, Oyo North lawmaker Senator Abdulfatai Buhari, in a recent interview with journalist Edmund Obilo, stated that he will support Tinubu for the country’s top seat once he declares his intentions.
