Bola Tinubu, Presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) says he will not quit politics until his life-long ambition of becoming president is realised.
“I won’t retire from politics until I am the president of Nigeria,” the former Lagos governor said on Tuesday. “I will bring the experience of my leadership in Lagos state as a Governor to bare on my leadership style in Nigeria.”
Mr Tinubu joined the presidential race in January after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari. He said the aspiration was a life-long ambition he has been nurturing.
Since then, he has been touring states across the country, meeting with traditional rulers, stakeholders and delegates that will vote during the presidential primary of the ruling party.
Addressing APC delegates in Makurdi, Benue State capital, Mr Tinubu said when he eventually emerge the candidate of his party, whoever becomes the flag bearer of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be no match for him.
“There’s no contest between me and whoever will emerge as the candidate of opposition PDP,” he boasted. “I guarantee you that I will run a transparent, open government. Nigeria is rich. What we need is to redirect our resources and channel them in the right direction.”
