I may run for presidency – Tinubu

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu

All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said he is not ruling out joining the presidential race in the future.Tinubu, however, explained that such ambition will only be realistic if there is vacancy.

The former Lagos state governor, spoke in an interview at the inauguration of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Akure, in a video obtained by Sahara Reporters.

Tinubu said to him, vying for any office whether the presidency or a senator, is an opportunity to serve the country.

“I will not brush aside such an aspiration….Maybe as a senator, maybe as a president, you cannot rule it out.
“How can I rule such a thing out? The opportunity to serve my country. But you only do that when there is vacancy.”
He, however, added that such ambition will depends on other political factors such as timing, the environment, and what the political leadership dictates.

The APC leader cited the case of President Muhammadu Buhari who vied for the presidency three times, before becoming an elected president, explaining that this was possible due to his resilience, determination and clarity of purpose.
