Bola Tinubu, presidential aspirant of the All Progressive Congress (APC) says he is ready to get dirty in order to realize his life-long political ambition and succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in office as the country’s next leader.

Mr Tinubu stated this on Sunday while seeking the blessings of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and the Olubadan-designate, Oba Lekan Balogun.

The former governor visited the monarchs to notify them of his intention to vie for the exalted position which he claimed Nigerians asked him to come out for.

“I cannot embark on a project of such magnitude without seeking for prayers and cooperation of the traditional rulers,” Mr Tinubu said. “I am here to inform our fathers of my decision to run for the position of the President of this country in 2023. What I need from our highly reverred traditional rulers are their prayers and cooperation.”

He vowed that his opponents will not intimidate him out of the race which some socio-cultural organizations in the South have asked him to back out of.

“No amount of intimidation can stop me. I am ready to get dirty. I am out to become President of Nigeria. We are at a crossroads.”
