2023: ‘No rule stops kingmaker from becoming king’, Tinubu defends presidential ambition

The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has dismissed the calls in some quarters that he should remain a kingmaker instead of being a presidential candidate in 2023.

Tinubu stated this when he fielded questions from State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in the Presidential Villa Abuja on Monday.

According to the APC chieftain, he is a Nigerian and he has the right to be the king himself, not just a kingmaker.

He said, “I have never seen where it is written in the rule book anywhere in any country that a kingmaker cannot be a king unless he commits murder. I want to pursue my ambition without the title of a kingmaker.”

The APC stalwart said he was in the presidential villa to formally inform the President of his desire to run for President in 2023.

”I can say categorically yes! I have informed the President of my intention but I have not informed Nigerians yet.

”I am still consulting and I have no problem consulting and I have not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of consultation.

“You will soon hear what you want to hear all you want to hear, a categorical declaration; you’ve gotten that truth from me that I have informed the President of my ambition and you don’t expect more answers than that.”
