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