Tinubu, a former Lagos state governor, has also been rumoured to be eyeing the country's highest stool, though no official pronouncement has been made from the camp of the APC chieftain.

But Osoba reiterated that Tinubu is an individual who has the right to vote and be voted for. According to him:

“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."

Osoba, who swung the pendulum back to the formation of the APC, said the southwest region is the centre of the progressive movement in Nigeria.
