Those Saying My Supposed Presidential Ambition Is Dead, I seek Your Pity – Tinubu

1 Mins read

All Progressives Congress, APC chietain, Bola Tinubu, says he pities those saying his supposed ambition to become President in 2023 is dead.

Tinubu said this in a statement on Saturday while reacting to the dissolution of the National Working Committee by the President, Maj.Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

He said, “To those who have been actively bleating how the President’s actions and the NEC meeting have ended my purported 2023 ambitions, I seek your pity.

“I am but a mere mortal who does not enjoy the length of foresight or political wisdom you profess to have. Already, you have assigned colourful epitaphs to the 2023 death of an alleged political ambition that is not yet even born.”

Tinubu, who did not deny or affirm whether he had a Presidential ambition, said there was no time for such due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

He said he would rather busy himself with how to ensure the economic recovery of the country.

The former Lagos State governor stated, “During this period, I have not busied myself with politicking regarding 2023. I find that a bit distasteful and somewhat uncaring particularly when so many of our people have been unbalanced by the twin public health and economic crises we face.

“I have devoted these last few months to thinking of policies that may help the nation in the here and now. What I may or may not do 3 years hence seems too remote given present exigencies.”

He said he had toiled for the success of the APC just like any other individual and he would continue to make sacrifices to ensure that the party remains on the path of progress.

Tinubu added, “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.”
