The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said that he could contest for a political office in the near future including the Presidency whenever the right opportunity presents itself. Tinubu spoke on the sidelines of last weekend’s swearing-in of Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, in Akure, even as he chastised public criticisms of the management of the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari. He urged Nigerians to put aside disbelief and pray for the continued good health of the president.
Tinubu, who witnessed the inauguration of his onetime protégée, who he ironically fell out with last year, also dismissed insinuations of squabbling in the leadership of the APC. Asked by reporters at the inauguration ground the possibility of seeking political office, including the Presidency, he said: “You see, there is nothing wrong with such ambition. It depends on the timing and the environment and what political leadership dictates. 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.”
