- An APC chieftain, Henry Dele Ajomale, has said no force can stop Tinubu from becoming president in 2023 if it has been destined
- Ajomale dismissed the speculations that current happenings in the APC are targeted to frustrate Tinubu's alleged ambition
- The APC chieftain, however, said Tinubu’s alleged aspiration should not be seen as a threat to the ambition of any other individual in the south who nurses 2023 presidential ambition
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Henry Dele Ajomale, has spoken about the alleged presidential ambition of the party's national leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In an interview published by The Sun on Saturday, August 9, the APC chieftain said no force can stop Tinubu’s presidential aspiration in 2023.
Asked if the current political developments in APC are part of efforts by some groups within the party to stop or frustrate Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition, Ajomale said:
"Honestly, I believe that no force can stop or frustrate Tinubu if it has been destined that he will be there in 2023. Moreover, why would any group be so desperate to stop a man that is eminently qualified to hold the post?
"Tinubu is eminently qualified, and if he comes out today to express interest I believe that millions of Nigerians will come out to support him. Forget whatever people like Adebanjo are saying.
"Some of these things they are saying are even borne out of envy, and personal jealousy. If Tinubu is destined to be there in 2023, no human force can stop him," he said.
The APC chieftain, however, added that Tinubu’s alleged aspiration should not be seen as a threat to the ambition of any other individual in the south who also has an interest in 2023.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Tinubu accused Governor Godwin Obaseki of committing the gravest possible assault on constitutional democracy and rule of law.
The APC chieftain made the accusation on Friday, August 7, when reacting to the unfolding political developments in Edo state.
He alleged that the Edo state governor made a mockery of the country’s constitution by blocking the timely inauguration of two-thirds of the elected members of the state House of Assembly.
