Nigerians should wait till January 2022 for the National Leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to declare whether he will be running for president in 2023 or not.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, stated this on Channels Television’s ‘Hard Copy’ program aired on Friday night.
“It is a very tough responsibility, a very tough job; I don’t envy those who have held that office and I don’t envy those who aspire to take it as well,” said Fashola when queried whether he is interested in becoming the President of Nigeria.
When also questioned whether he is speaking for any aspirant come 2023, the Minister reiterated, “As far as I am aware, nobody has said, ‘I want to be Nigeria’s President’. People are speaking for people. Nobody has come out, we are not at that stage yet.
“I can’t venture out and say that I will speak for X or Y. Let the person come out and say, ‘I want to serve Nigeria’.”
On whether he will support Tinubu’s rumored 2023 presidential bid, the two-term ex-governor of Lagos said, “I saw him (Tinubu) last week, he didn’t tell me he is running for office and to the best of my knowledge, the last statement he made on it is that people will know in January.”
