A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that the election year, 2023 is too far away for him to begin to think as whether he will contest the Presidency or not.
He declared: “2023 will answer its own questions in due time. What I may or may not do 3 years hence seems too remote given present exigencies.”
In a statement today, June 27, Bola Tinubu said that those who seek to cast themselves as political Nostradamus’ are free to so engage their energies, adding that the discerning public may give the views of such eager seers the scant weight such divinations warrant.
“Personally, I find greater merit trying to help in the present by offering policy ideas, both privately and publicly, where I think they might help. I will continue in this same mode for the immediate future.
“I have toiled for this party as much as any other person and perhaps more than most. Despite this investment or perhaps due to it, I have no problem with making personal sacrifices (and none of us should have such a problem) as long as the party remains true to its progressive, democratic creed. “Politics is but a vehicle to arrive at governance. Good politics promotes good governance. Yet, politics is also an uncertain venture. No one gets all they want all the time. In even a tightly-woven family, differences and competing interests must be balanced and accommodated.”
