Tinubu’s Presidential Bid Receives Massive Boost


By Babajide Okeowo

The Presidential ambition of former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has received a massive boost.

Former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, are among few who have thrown their weight behind the presidential ambition of Tinubu.

Tinubu, a chieftain of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) is one of the first frontline politicians to publicly announce his interest to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari when Nigeria goes to the polls in 2023.

At a conference of Tinubu Support Groups held on Monday, some prominent members of the APC and leaders of various groups within the party gathered at the main hall of the International Conference Centre in Abuja.

For former Governor Shettima, who presently serves as the senator representing Borno Central, Tinubu is the most qualified candidate in the party to replace President Buhari in 2023.

Lawal, on his part, spoke against the backdrop of the challenges confronting the ruling party and how they have impeded its performances.

He, however, made a proposal that supporting the former Lagos State governor could change the narrative within the ruling party.

The Director-General of Bola Tinubu Support Groups Management Council, Abdulmumin Jibrin, stated that the gathering was interested in the massive mobilisation of members to ensure the emergence of Tinubu as the party’s presidential candidate.

Following the public declaration of Tinubu’s ambition last Monday, other APC chieftains including some serving governors and lawmakers have made their intentions public.

Recall that Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, and Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Kalu, are also among those eyeing the highest office in the land and calling for the zoning of the 2023 presidency to the south-east region of the country.
