Tinubu has all it takes to lead Nigeria - APC

"Tinubu is a man whom we see as the Moses of our time," he declared.

APC national leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu dismissed Atiku's chances of becoming the next president of Nigeria and has been cautioned for it.

Although Tinubu is yet to declare his intention to run for president in 2023, the state chapter of the ruling party believes that the former Lagos governor deserves Nigeria's top job due to his contributions to the country.

Speaking at a briefing in Lagos on Monday, February 24, 2020, the party’s state secretary, Lanre Ogunyemi, said they are behind Tinubu should he declare for president anytime soon.

“Tinubu has all it takes to lead this country and he has every fundamental right as a Nigerian to aspire; it is now left for Nigerians to accept or not, it is now left for the party to decide who flags their ship as a presidential candidate come 2023," Ogunyemi said.

“Whether he has briefed us or expressed any body language, whether people are against it or not, we are sure he has everything to lead this nation.

“This is a man who has contributed tremendously to what we call modern Nigeria; he is a man whom we see as the Moses of our time that has a lot of resourcefulness.

“Whichever way it goes, let us decide if it goes to the South; let us decide whether it goes to the Southwest or Southeast and what we look at is merit; who can take us to the place that Nigeria ought to be.

“If we find that in Bola Tinubu, why not, he doesn’t have to brief us, let’s keep watching the body language and see what will manifest in 2023.

“We are standing absolutely on his mandate,” he maintained.

Meanwhile, former Zamfara state governor, Ahmed Sani Yarima, believes that even President Muhammadu Buhari's backing cannot guarantee Tinubu the presidential ticket of the the APC in 2023.

This is even as a chieftain of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, has vowed to dump Nigeria for Togo if Tinubu becomes president in 2023.
