The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says he won’t vote for any of his counterparts if he weren’t contesting the 2023 presidential election.

Tinubu was asked in an interview he granted BBC Africa if would vote for either Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) if he weren’t on the ballot.

“None, because they are not as competent as any other person out there. They have no track record, none of them is qualified except me.”

Why my source of wealth is being criticised - Tinubu

Meanwhile, Tinubu also spoke about his source of wealth, saying those criticising him were driven by envy.

According to him, his wealth came from investments in real estate.

“I am not denying my wealth. I was the most investigated, the most accused governor in the opposition for eight years and since I left the office, I have not taken any government appointment, no government contract,” he said.

Tinubu also denied sharing any of Lagos's resources with the state government.

2023: Go home and take a deserved rest, Atiku’s aide tells Tinubu

In another report, Phrank Shaibu, the special assistant to Atiku Abubakar on public communications, has described Tinubu's recent outing at Chatham House as disgraceful.

The media aide to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate advised the APC presidential aide to quit the race, go home and rest.

“After reading his prepared speech for about 15 minutes, it was time for the question and answer session. Clearly lacking the capacity to respond to easy questions, he claimed his style is to delegate and thereafter decided to call on members of his campaign to answer questions for him," Shaibu said in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Tuesday, December 5, as he recalled Tinubu's outing in London.
