A leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and Presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, on Friday in Akure said that his ambition, come 2023, was neither a threat nor to brag but a reality.

Tinubu, who sought the support of traditional rulers in Ondo State for his ambition, stated this at the residence of the Deji of Akure, Oba Ogunlade Aladelusi.

The former Governor of Lagos State had earlier met with traditional rulers from the southern part of the state in Okitipupa and also had a meeting with traditional rulers from the northern part of the state in Owo before the Akure meeting with traditional rulers in the Ondo Central Senatorial District.

He explained that a presidential candidate should have wisdom on how to govern a large crowd, saying he had what it required to rule Nigeria.

Tinubu said he had a passion for the country, citing many struggles he had fought during the nascent democracy and those that benefitted from his political stance.

According to him, he is fit and bold to win the political contest, adding that he had informed President Muhammadu Buhari about his ambition and that the president had given him marching orders.

He promised that he would create employment opportunities and develop the country if voted into power in 2023, saying that he had the abilities and is medically fit to transform the country.

Responding, the Deji of the Akure, Oba Aladelusi, described Tinubu as a builder, saying that he would transform the country if he emerges as president.

Oba Aladelusi noted that Tinubu’s antecedents are obvious which would clear the way for his ambition.

He said that the ex-Lagos Governor had respect and regards for traditional rulers, promising that Akure kingdom in particular would cast its votes massively for him.

The traditional ruler also said that traditional rulers in Yoruba land would have a meeting with all contestants from the region and agree on one candidate.
