Tinubu will address rumour about his presidential ambition in 2022 - Fashola
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that as calls for Tinubu to vie for the most exalted seat in the country intensified, the minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, urged Nigerians to wait till January 2022 for the former governor of Lagos state to declare whether he would be running for president in 2023 or not.
The minister stated this on Channels Television’s ‘Hard Copy’ programme aired on the night of Friday, November 19.
Although Tinubu has yet to declare his intention to contest any office in 2023, there have been reports and veiled indications that he might be interested in the exalted seat.
Why Tinubu must run for president in 2023
In another report, a pro-Tinubu group, Youths Earnestly Ask for Tinubu (YEAT), threw its weight behind the APC leader as a potential candidate for president in 2023.
It was reported that YEAT national president, Nimjul Nansak Pennap, who spoke to reporters in Jos, the Plateau state capital on Thursday, November 18, said that the group will campaign across Nigeria to drum support for Tinubu to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
He said that Tinubu has what it takes to sustain the strides of President Buhari in tackling insecurity, corruption and making life better for the average Nigerian.
